Anyone notice this about their sense of white balance?
1

I noticed that after doing photography for a while, I developed a more absolute sense of white balance. Normally, the brain compensates for white balance and you see a white piece of paper as white whether it's in the sun or the shade. But now I seem to pay more attention to the white balance and see white things as more blue in the shade and more orange in the sun. Or I notice the bluer hue of things in cloudy weather. I mean, I know people already do that and can do that, but I just noticed that I have become more conscious of this when I'm just looking around.

Has anyone else noticed a change in the way they perceive white balance after having gotten into photography?
