Replaced Photos from Le Bernardin

I manually color corrected the photos from Le Bernardin now that I'm back home and no longer working off a laptop screen. The lighting at Le Bernardin was so yellow that it couldn't be easily color corrected without significant hue shifting. Even so, I couldn't produce a neutral gray based on my gray card shots without massively distorting the more saturated colors in the food. I really wasn't happy with the first set I posted (much too yellow), so I tried to reduce the yellow a little while still preserving the colors. Not entirely happy with the new pictures, but I think they are better than before.

Here's an example using the butter poached shrimp canape that started our meal (right is newer):
