An impressive cloud to the East at sunset last night:

I did something different with the white balance - does it look natural?

The bird is a juvenile bald eagle, so no white head or tail.


The WB looks fine on my monitor. Better than natural.


Actually, yeah. When I was working on this, there was an obvious blue cast - which is to be expected, since I took this in the 'blue hour'. But, while I was out on the beach, the white objects did not appear to have a blue cast - my brain expected white and that's what I saw.

But not so for the image on the computer screen.

So I selected the foreground, and feathered the top side to the max PS would allow (150 pixels), and then used the eyedropper to WB on the wave foam at the bottom. So the WB was fully applied at the bottom, and up for a way, then gradually went to zero over 150 pixels somewhere around the distant shore.

A WB gradient, so to speak!
