Have you tried keeping an eye on the RGB Histogram on your D800e when shooting? If you see the red channel is way to the right, use some negative EV compensation to pull it back.  Then in post, you can push the reds just a bit to the right.

There's a short article on this.

Best of luck, and happy shooting, Markus

Exactly. Thank you.

Do either of you understand the role of WB in evaluating the camera's RGB histogram?
