Quick question - did I cool this off too much when adjusting the white balance? PS wanted me to push the BY WB way more towards the blue but it just looked wrong. My fiancée thinks the SOOC image looks good too, but it definitely was too warm. I'm wondering if this is still too cool. I'm using warm white LEDs in both of those lamps and warm white LEDs on the tree itself. To keep things looking accurate I did a selective color adjustment and darkened the greens & reds, as the tree was looking a little blue-green after the WB modification.

I just realized that the image was prevented from being shown embedded because I had a png which was over 4 megs, so I changed it to a jpeg a little over 1 MB. But what's the limit in embedded file size display? I knew there were resolution limits, but not filesize.

I don't think that the image is too cool - I think the green of the tree is a tad off....When you take pics like this its difficult to get a true white balance because of all the different temps of lights that are on. You can always individual mask certain parts of the image to get the true desire color of the image you want.

Green looks just a little light to me. But that's about it. Here's one I got of an ornament before the cat knocked the tree over (this ornament was saved!)
