Hi all,

I've been experimenting with my Nikon D3200 which I had converted with a 590nm filter at Kolarivision.

Setting custom WB, I'm finding, is impossible by the in camera measurement technique (I'm not even sure how necessary this is, if I can set WB in NX2).
I've plumped for Incandescent setting based upon what I read on another forum, but despite this, and my use of NX2, I cannot get my foliage looking as white as some images I've seen here and elsewhere.
My original image looks, to me, more contrasty and reddish when compared to some "starting points" I've seen elsewhere.
What I'd really love is for someone to take one of my images and work it, so that I/they could establish where I'm going wrong.

Any help/advice anyone can offer would be greatly appreciated.
