Maybe for someone artistic with some understanding of color, that works.

As someone who enjoys photography and the outcome and just wants it to look close to what I remember, to have to mangle through the myriad of available colors to come up with something uniquely “me”?  No way.  Give me a one click preset prepared by someone that knows a lot more than I do all day.

Personally, I’ve taken to Canon’s “Standard” picture style and AWB-White Priority.  It seems to work well with my families skin tones without being too red (Portrait) or yellow (AWB-Ambient Priority).  To move hue, saturation, or luminosity- I’d just goof up the colors.
