White Balance

White balance also known as color temperature can be so important to how an image appears, the above image was giving me fits with the white balance, I ended up cooling it down a little to remove an orange cast that was caused by my in camera settings (WB set to shade), also another reason to shoot RAW, if you shoot jpg your stuck with your white balance for the most part. I shot it at a temperature of 6250K and reduced it in Lightroom to 5646K and that removed the orange cast in the image and brought out the green in the foliage and helped with the blue in the sky.
