Hello John and welcome to TE,
Very beautiful image of Mammoth Springs you show us here. I like particularly the fully lighted steam rolling over the hill. In my opinion it is a pity that the blue tones are a bit too heavy due to white balance set to automatic I presume. Once the white balance adjusted in a workshop, your image looks more natural I think.

Default To trebuA: Worshop edit

Hello Guy,

Thanks for your work in PS. I shot each photo in JPEG and Pentax RAW. I went into the photo in RAW and was able to change white balance, the white balance set on cloudy was closest to the picture in your workshop. I am almost sure the camera was set on daylight. This is not hat I would have expected, but I am still learning about the digital photography.

Thanks again

Hi John,
I am not an expert, that's for sure but here is what I think about: NO ONE camera is able to reproduce the right white balance in difficult light circumstances, certainly not using the presets (that would be rather a chance) but still the easiest way to handle. Maybe manual settings is a solution but tricky. In my opinion the best solution is to set the white point, the black point and the gray point in post processing for best results (as far as I know).
