Re: Lightroom auto white balance

I generally stay out of LR-specific discussions since I don't use the software, but whitebalance is a universal thing...

On this image, if I'm going to use a patch to set the white balance I use the part of the engine smokebox directly below the '463'.  The scooch of the blue multiplier from 1.316 to 1.216 puts it pretty close.  This is my test image for software development; I go back and forth between making it neutral, or keeping the original cast because the light was actually that way...
