    WB Examples

    Maybe if folks are experimenting with White balance they could post some comparisons here??
    If I post one - maybe others will follow??
    With my D80 - I use Sunshine WB a lot - it seems to give an accurate
    colour/cast most of the time. I do actually fine tune with a +1 or 2 blue on top - but that's basically it.
    On very dull days the Auto white workes quite well
    But it's not as simple as that!!
    On a sunny day the Auto is a touch warmer than Sunshine WB and
    On a Dull day Sunshine WB seems a touch warmer than Auto
    So, you see, with each different camera we need to discover how it performs
    on different settings.
    My example - the Left hand shots are straight off the camera and the Right hand are corrected afterwards to achieve the closest match to how I felt it should look.
    The top image was Sunshine WB and the bottom was Auto WB.
    The plant in question was taken on an overcast day
    I reckon if I did the same test on a sunny day it would be exactly the opposite results.
    Hope I havent confused you all
    BTW - can anyone tell me what this plant is???
