While shooting some ice sculptures I decided to play with different white balance settings, to see what effect using the 'wrong' setting would have on the pictures. While the picture is not very good, I thought this was a good example of how white balance can be used to create unusual photos effects in camera, for those that don't shoot raw (like me). Picture one is with the WB set to tungsten (the sculptures werelit with coloured flood lamps). Picture 2was taken with flash, WB still set to tungsten.

Thanks everyone for the comments.

Robar, thanks for posting your pics. It is a great example of the 'day for night' effect that I have seen referred to elsewhere. I've been meaning to try it for daylight shots.

Chris
