Re: WB Hates Whiteys

Auto WB is often 'fooled' by dominant non-target colours in a scene. In the case of the blue-sky background it's trying to neutralise the sky by warming it.

The only time I use Auto now is in mixed artificial lighting. For everything else I pick a particular balance preset (eg Daylight) and stick to it. Resulting colours might be 'off', but at least they're consistently off.
