Re: Lightroom auto white balance

Your camera does exactly the same als your software, it evaluates sensor data, and has no clue whatsoever of the real surroundings. If anything, the camera is a bit dumber than your PC, because it has less processing power. All calculations are done after the fact, so on the raw data.

So if we are talking colour, and want to get out of the 'how we feel about colour' discussion, you should have some objective data. Did you shoot a color-calibration card, and is your monitor calibrated? Do you use a camera calibration in LR? What do the RGB numbers say for patches that you KNOW should be perfectly white or gray?
