GPGP:

I hear ya; but I wonder, look at the second OP pic I posted. The background greens and other props look within the realm of normal and don't show such a green bias. I know using a grey card would provide a baseline though...and somehow, I'm doubtful he has any manual controls at all to do the test...

Not sure this type of photog would go to such lengths, either. I think getting a more modern cam would really help and I'm going to suggest this, even if its a more modern PS.

I don't know what camera you are using, but modern DSLR and advanced P&S cameras allow you to set the white balance in the camera. Take a piece of computer printer paper with you when you shoot the pond. Hold the paper in the same light that you will shoot the pond and use the manual white balance adjust feature on your camera. Then using that white balance shoot the pond and see if the colors are better.
