First ever dabbling outside in early spring sunshine with 2mm filters.
Used PTFE to white balance.

Looks nice. My daisies are more violet than how they appear to you, it may be a combination of reach, white balance and sensor's response.

If the raw converter assumes a "normal" colour profile, the resulting false colours can be all over the place. Even when one has conducted "UV white" balance off PTFE. I prefer setting the colour profile to "undefined".

It's all new to me, used a raw file just used daylight profile.
Exported an extended range dng file from this to sort out an extended colour temp range via DNG profile editor, then once applied this profile to the original raw file, then used the white balance off a bit of ptfe.
Is this basically the normal way to do this in the field? If there is a normal best practice way.
Thanks

I'm always surprised how UV-dark the daffodils are!

Your white balance looks ok. The false "blue" we get can be more towards the violet side or more towards the blue side because white balancing depends on so many different factors. :smile:

Thanks, was not expecting that darkness either from the daffodils.

Many yellow flowers are UV dark. This can be seen all over the Plant Kingdom.
