Just re-read this. My units are warmer than 5600, not cooler so on 2nd thought, the dome explanation doesn't make sense.

However, I think UKPhotographer is right. Until I measure it with a color meter, I can't say conclusively but I'm going to setup a test without the dome and compare it to the BXRI but I won't get the BXRI back for another week or so...

The effect you're seeing IS DUE to a warming of the colour temperature. Whether thats by the domes.. or some other reason. I take the -300°K to be a 'warming'

Ironically, and easily a source for confusion, higher, (hotter?) colour temperatures look 'cooler'.

Theres only one sun. Why do I need more than one light to get a natural result?
