    One is the raw as shot pic, the other is after I changed the temperature to daylight. I had two windows open and a continuous light source with daylight bulbs to my right bounced off a white closet door. The skin tones look very red to me though. How does it look to everyone else?

    Firstly, make sure that your monitor is properly calibrated (using a calibration device), otherwise you'll never know if what you're seeing (or how you're adjusting) is accurate.
