Maybe it's just Lightroom, but I certainly don't like the WB in this example. I understand it's dusk and heavy overcast, but still it's far too blue, and the excessive blue channel gain isn't helping the visible noise level.

Hi Doug,

I like the image composition and I think you did a great job capturing the subject.  And your new D850 and 200-500 came through with flying colors.. but speaking of colors, I agree with Marianne.  40 years of pro experience I've learned that you cannot trust your eye to "remember" how it really looked. I'm sure it was gray and blue, but it seems extreme in this case.  AWB works well, but it is "ballpark".  When I first saw your image, my first reaction was that the WB was off, so much so that it distracted me from the main subject.  BTW, I too love the combination of the D850 and the 200-500.  Anyway, just my thoughts..

All the Best,
