    Too many greens .. It really depends on what you are looking for . I would add some magentas to take out the greens . Take out some yellow yada yada .I work with film to much blaaah ..damn you work .

    I was bored... Hope you dont mind .. This was actually a super weird photo to work with . Obviously with raw you could do ALOT more .. Heres what I did with what you posted though ..

    looks like your camera was just retarded and couldnt figure out you were shooting under florescent lights. in LR change your white balance to florescent and see how it looks. if it still looks funny, tweak it manually.

    i do this all the time with daylight film shot indoors.

    here's another example...

    Most of the images are too green... is it possible to batch process this or should it be more of a case by case basis thing.

    Should I have manually WB instead of leaving it on Auto?

    manual white balance. next time look to see what kind of light it is. florescent lights will make your picture look green, tungsten is yellow...those are you big two. in lightroom you can just select the whole folder and play with the white balance adjustment to save time. you will be more consistent that way.

    but really pretty simple. just need to warm it up a bit.

    florecent light can really look ugly. it has red, green and blue rays going on, but normally its the green that is visable to sensors. AWB and fix in PP or do a manual WB. A florecent setting is pretty worthless as every light is unique in its pattern and intensity.

    Are you sure you don't have some setting turned on in the camera that is making whites look green? Flourescent lights will fuck with the color but if it's doing it to more than just those two pics, it could be a setting issue.

    its the auto white balance getting confused by the flourescent lights.

    That I'd expect, but I was asking if it's doing it to OTHER pictures as well. Outside, non-flourescent lights, yada yada. If so, then there's something else a matter.

    You can do the same thing in Photoshop in the layers menu...

    Setting the black and white points everyone should do.

    Not to mention, it color corrects everything automatically, so it doesn't matter if your monitor is out of calibration.

    or in ps apply a cooresponding color photo filter. in this case a magenta and apply the right intensity. RAW or LR is obviously the easiest way
