Re: a99: The All Souls Procession

Thanks for that explanation.  All I could do is put the eyedropper on something white and then increment the tint a bit if needed.

As far as your white balance woes go, Sodium Discharge bulbs are pretty impossible to properly balance for, because they have an extremely low colour rendering index. Although you can white balance for a sodium bulb's effective colour temperature (~3800K), lots of things will still look wrong because the light doesn't contain most colours, so it can't show them adequately on your subject.
