On a whole do you like your photos warmer or cooler?

Pretty much as the topic asks, what is your preference overall?

Generally like cooler skin tones and less saturation in photos overall

Is this a test?

cooler for landscapes/inanimate objects; warmer for portraits. Of course it's all relative.

Really, the only times I like some "coloration" is either when I'm getting a shot in the late afternoon and I like the "warm" look or I'm shooting indoors and I like a bit of the ambient.

Like Tony, I pay attention to the lighting, whether indoor ambient or outdoor natural light.

I tend to shoot warm (having a custom parameter set), but I'm always pleasantly surprised when I take it off and put it on a slightly colder parameter. I like warm sunsets though (who doesn't), apart from that, I don't really care.

I prefer warm. I think it's left over from my afternoons shooting Kodachrome.

No overall preference. It depends on the image (and its purpose).
