This also happened to me, on yesterday evening - and with every single shot that I fired from my D300. No matter what I tried to change, in the settings, the end result was the same. So I will be following this thread closely.

May, or may not, be something but what white balance setting? Auto or other? Were the images RAW or jpg?

SORRY , MY REPLY WAS WRONG. WHEN I REVIEWED THE MENUS I NOTICED A LIGHT BULB NEXT TO W/B. THIS MEANS THAT MY WHITE BALANCE WAS SET TO INCANDESCENT. I NEVER ADJUSTED IT MYSELF AS IT IS USUALLY SUNNY HERE AND I DO NOT NEED IT. OCCASIONALY I PLAY WITH THE WHITE BALANCE.

COULD THIS BE THE REASON ?

yepper... I normally set it to Auto unless I'm in a gym or such with flourescent. The White Balance adjusts the temperature of the colors with colder temps tending bluish and warmer temps tending to reddish...

I sometimes use Live View to determine the proper White Balance.

You can see the affect of various settings on the LCD in Live View mode.

Then you can return to normal shooting mode and use the WB you determined works best for the scene befoore you.

A bit cumbersome, but it works.
