They look a little blue to me as well.

I've only changed one thing about this picture, but I think the little things go a long way:

Took me a second, but yes I would have done that as well. Nicely done.

You're absolutely right. That too is one of the things that keeps me up at night. I'm relatively new at portrait photography, and it's really something I'm working really hard at. Do you, or anyone else for that matter, have any suggestions on how to be more consistent with color? I'm shooting RAW and editing in Aperture.

As stated above a white balance card or something like a color checker is a big help especially if you are shooting anything that is color sensitive like product or clothing shots where proper color reproduction is a must. In shooting portraits consistency in skin tone is key. If all the shots are shot under pretty much the same lighting I would set the first image white balance and tint where you like it then lift and stamp that to the rest of the images in Aperture and work from there. If you are working in photoshop I use the eyedropper tool and set an area sample point in a midtone area of the skin and set the info pallet to show CMYK, then I use a curves layer to adjust the skin tone so the yellow is slightly higher than the magenta and the cyan is about a third the magenta. This formula works well for caucasian skin and is my starting point before any toning or other effects. The color checker is really the best way to go you just need to make the proper profiles for your camera.

#4: Is she a photographer? Thats the only way that having her hold a camera would make sense. If she isnt a photographer, then having her hold a camera just for the sake of holding a camera doesnt work.

I'm guessing she doesn't normally hang out in a train yard either. Does that somehow invalidate the other shots as well? (and the thousands of train track shots out there?).
