Lovely portrait, Arunava. While perhaps the saturation of the orange hues here is too high, the shot itself is well composed, and you caught this young girl at a wonderful moment, huddled against the cold and watching down the beach, perhaps for new customers. Thanks.

Default To ACL1978: Orange

I increased the black option during post processing in Lightroom. It adds color to the shot. Didn't increase orange saturation. After going through your post, it seems you are right. Need suggestion to avoid this sort of things..

I've done the same in Lightroom; after using the 'Blacks' setting for a while, I did find that it tends to oversaturate, so I've tended to use it more sparingly now, increasing contrasts more instead. That's worked to a degree. Clarity also at times can have similar effect, especially when dealing with the higher register of light.

Hope that helps!
