Correct, the sun was not quite up yet. So the white balance was adjusted for the ambient pre-dawn light instead of the house lights.

Did you just fiddle with different light balance in LR4 or did you do this in-camera? If the latter, what setting for WB did you use? Or did you use custom WB with a gray card? I don't really know how to do the latter on my OMD EM5 (yet). Thanks.

With light as wonky as pre-dawn + porch lights, I'm pretty sure I played with the WB in Lightroom until I had something I was happy with. The tricky part was to get the majority of the shot looking natural without the incandescents looking too yellow.

Sometimes I shoot a white or grey card and then use the WB Dropper tool in Lightroom to give me an idea of the ambient WB.

I always shoot RAW.
