    A bit blue, towards purplish.

    Nice and clean shots though~.

    For #3, the left seems to be more than the right. Try to balance.

    yape ..your version is black and mine bluish ...I try to used curve to bring down the magenta/purple ....

    My flow is curve ...click on the red on the RGB and bring down the red ..should bring the blue too since red and blue get purple , just my wild guess ....btw my screen not calibrated ....tonight go back muts try again argggggggg

    Maybe can share how to correct the WB

    thanks for the help dude...and no problem your version can stay as a a learning for everyone

    well i used the photoshop raw editor, opened your jpeg file as raw to edit in the window, all i needed was to click on the white part which was the white font.

    if you're using curves, its alittle harder to explain but u need to find the neutral point which is the white font and check the colour points on the curve. sum them up and divide by 3 and adjust the output for red, green and blue individually to that averaged value and you get your neutral colour on that point which should correct your white balance in this case.

    not sure if its digestable or not what i just said but if not i can try to further help if you need to. just sharing alittle knowledge of what i know
