First Hal thank you for moderating this forum.

1) A great book co-authored by the Adobe Master Bruce Fraser. I have it in my collection. In reference to the sRGB/AdobeRGB discussion. http://www.amazon.com/Real-World-Color-Management-2nd/dp/0321267222/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1343794941&sr=1-1&keywords=real+world+color+management

2) I can't seem to find which thread Hal put his WB shots in again or I would link to it here. Ok found it. Memory issues. https://www.nikonians.org/forums/dcboard.php?az=show_topic&forum=423&topic_id=346&mesg_id=346&page=

3) Instead of uploading 5 images This link is on my FB page. Erik A Study in WB. You can scroll through the photos and it tells what the WB adjustment is for each. Notice the color shift in the red jacket. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150407411024965.364164.75044229964&type=3

4) I have read in here about monitor calibration and the importance for viewing WB. Yes important. But for viewing the subtle differences, a high contrast (calibrated) monitor IMHO is the best. Mine is an older Samsung with an 8000:1 dynamic contrast. I can see all of the differences in Hal's thread. Mine is not calibrated per say. It is adjusted based on the print output of my Epson 4880 using the Moab Lasal Luster paper and ICC profile. So what I see is what I get.

Last of all but not least IMHO the proper WB is the most important aspect in achieving the most accurate color in a photograph.

I know there is more, I just can't think of it at the moment.

Have a great evening.
