I put this photo on looking for some advice. I tired RAW file's white balance tool on this photo. I'd never used it before,I simply targeted the dark clouds on the top right. I wonder which one's colour is more 'real' compare with the "auto" setting on previous uploadings of this park. Brightened it up a bit ..
A view slightly towards right..
Thanks for looking, all comments and criticisms are very welcome.
I've been trying to find out more about white balance on RAW file processing in the past few days. Two questions had been in my mind.One was what was the perfect grey, and the second was how to find it on RAW file? I just found out that in RAW file, both of the hand tool and dropper show the RGB live value, if I hovered them round. If you are interested in this subject, I'll upload the same photo with RGB:128;128;128 on workshop for you to have a look. Thanks again.

Another agreeable composition from this attractive town. The church spire though placed centrally is nicely balanced by the trees and makes an excellent focal point. I like the lighting and colours and the contrast offered by the almost black cloud on the right. The image has good clarity.
As to which colours are 'real', I think that all depends on the eye and the mood of the person who took the photograph. What looks best to you and/or seems to you to be what the scene looked like at the time. Personally, I find that my perceptions of colour and lighting in the final image change according to my mood at the time I process the image.

Very good point of view on the town under nice lights with a sky mixed with clouds
I think it was a good opportunity to make one day apanoramic view of this nice townscape.

This is a nice picture too. I like the black cloud that has entered the view. I prefered the colours of the last photo but whether they were more real I can't say. These look real enough and the difference of brightness may be due to the angle as compared to the sun, or these darker buildings reflecting less light. I really couldn't tell. I like them both.
