    What was your white balance on these? See the bluish hint on the right ... it appears the WB was set to 3200K or Tungsten, and then some flash or daylight from the right.

    I think it was on auto. I did not use the flash. I took the shot near my slider but it was cloudy out. What should I have set my WB on??
    Thanks

    They were on a green chair so they might have picked up some color from it.

    What you are dealing with is mixed lighting ... which is usually not an ideal situation. The camera's AWB gets confused, because it sees both temperatures (Tungsten 3200K and Daylight 5600K) and tries to compensate for them by finding an average (4400K).

    Ideally, you avoid introducing both and try to select one or the other as your "light source", to provide some control how the subject will be "cast."

    I know I would have gotten this pointed out to me, in class, had I turned in an image that included both so evidently. It's something you should be aware of, because the camera is trying to cope with the light temperature shifts you introduce. You should ask ... "Why did Don bring this up?" If you were playing with light, that would be one thing ... otherwise, it tends to look ... as is ... which is "uncontrolled." Your appreciation of the image and its technical aspects will be getting to the real point of my comment. It would be the same for almost any item.

    Personally, I'm not nuts about it. My suggestion is to "lose the daylight" (block it) and substitute a reflector or another Tungsten source for fill-lighting from the right.
