Let’s look at another variation of the same problem.
Is this true to what I saw? Maybe.
Is this true to what the camera’s algorithm reported as correct white balance? Definitely not!
Is it true to what I remember? Well, actually I can’t remember 😃
And there is one more thing: If you look at such a scene in real life, and if you look long enough, your “vision” begins to adapt. There is a temporal factor as well. Basically we have to decide if we want to be true to a short glance or a long examination. Of course the same is true for the viewer of the image. It’s complicated 😛
