Default Skin tones and fall colors, alt take

Hi there,

some people remarked that skin tones in my images were not realistic, my first reaction was "so what, this is not a beauty cream ad". I like the orange cast and the dreamish atmosphere of the images, how many impressionistic paintings use real skin tones?

In any case, this is a challenge, so I tried and see if I could make an alt take to the image preserving the atmosphere and the skin tones at the same time. I just aded a Color Balance tool after the ZoneMapper and clicked on the side of the girl'd book for a neutral reference. I liked it.
