Default A question of white balance

I need to pull my finger out and get a proper monitor .. one that actually displays colour correctly. In the meantime.. can you guys and gals let me know if the WB in this pic is out or not ?

I had the WB set to 5600k (hadn;t changed it from the studio) but LR and ACR show it as being 5200k (its always done that by the way). I set it to 5300k +8 (the default setings for the E1's PRF files). Is the WB correct or should it be upped to 6500k - cloudy or 7500k shade , as it was an over cast day and I was taking pics in the middle of a mini blizzard or would that make it too warm?

If its out .. I wouldn;t mind if someone had a crack at it and letting me know what WB theyd go for.

Harj, very slightly cool in the snow on my calibrated laptop. but fits the scene real well IMHO. the kite has blue bleed through from the front silk not the fault of your wb setting.

My uncalibrated laptop monitor shows the same - snow (very) slightly blue, kite more blue for the reason offered. I can't see anything wrong with it.

My calibrated monitor has it a bit cool as well but as others have noted, that fits the subject well.
