The Lineup....

A favorite photo of my son's Little League Team from 2010. First is "As Shot" WB and the second is "Cloudy" WB. I am liking the second one better... What are your thoughts?






BTW, my son is 4th from the far end....

The top one is closer to "real" in color. The extra warmth does add a warm feeling, though.

The way to "see" white balance is to look at white (or gray) areas. If the white or gray is neutral (no tint), then the other colors will fall into place as well.

It takes some time to train your eyes to see good white balance, and many people's monitors (or displays) are too far off to judge it accurately. A calibrating tool helps fix that.

Really tough call this one, the colours are definitely truer in the top one but the slightly lower saturation in the second on does seem to isolate the subject slightly better to my eyes, I guess it's down to personal taste this one.

Definitely agree that it's personal taste. In this instance, the warmer color in the second one works for me. The combination of kids playing little league baseball and warm, summer sunset color just seems right.

Seeing apart, I'd probably go for the bottom one as we like the sun. But, seeing together makes me linger on the top one for longer. So, I think that it must be a personal taste thing.

I'm sure that the parents of every one of those boys would either shot they saw. Great shot

I think both pictures are really nice, but I almost think the 2nd one is almost "too warm." Maybe something right in-between the two would be a better balance?
