    It's lens flare. I get those once in a while with strong back lighting.

    The greenish tint is due to the lens coating.

    Can't be help by WB.

    like I said in the previous post, I acknowledged the flare, and yes the flare has a greenish tinge due to lens coating etc...

    but overall in the whole image, there is a slight greenish tinge, especially in the shadow area, on the overall image due to slight WB issue... it might be due to ambient fluorescent light spilling onto the shadow area (this is of course speculation but it does look like the green tinge you get from fluorescent lighting)... likewise I have tried to adjust the tinge, successfully, by adjusting the overall colour of the image

    my room was completely darkened.no lights other than modelling lights.

    because i failed to shoot the WB card, i reckon that's where the tinge comes.
    sigh...
    so i was right.
    tons of PP to do.

    my friend, can share the corrected pic to me please?

    This is a typical lens flare. Lens flare (not the glaring studio light) is right at the front element of the lens which is in front of the everything, therefore you can see it in the shadow area. You can see that the tint is stronger closer to the bright areas.

    No matter what you do in the WB, you cannot prevent this. You can adjust WB spot on, but when the light strikes directly at your lens, you get the green flare.

    Nope... not because you fail to shoot the WB card. Tinge is not due to WB as I have said.

    so now i'm confused.

    so does that mean that pic does NOT have WB issue and the green tinge in the pic is sue to the FLARE?

    why don't you try adjusting the green/magenta slider of lightroom (assuming it has such a slider...only familiar with photoshop and capture one) towards the magenta side by a bit...

    Don't worry... just be aware of it the next time. Next time you encounter this, try taking out the filter. You can experiment whether WB helps or not.

    Since now it is already shot and over, the only thing you can do now is adjust it in post processing.

    I am ok with others having differing views, that does not make me hate the person...

    Looks ok, but then again, there's not much neutral colour in the scene to reference.
    If you understand my works, it's photography. If you don't, it's art.

    Prefer the first one - though I would like to have seen stronger flare, but without the green cast from the flare dominating the tones so much. I made a quick 2 minute edit of your photo - do you mind if I post it to show you what I mean ?
