sharpness is good on these but the WB is off on all of them. First set are all too yellow and last are all too blue. I see you used a manual WB. How did you set the WB value?

WB is the one area I haven't explored yet.....I shot in RAW and used the balance there when I converted them. This has been such a long road for me.....I think I am finally figuring out how and when to shoot and improving with my settings. But I am still at a huge loss with editing...

Have you tried using one of the railings to set the WB maybe? That could get you close and be consistent. You could experiment with a white edge and an edge in the shadows and then pick one or the other in a shot and then tweak from there.

I did try the white balance using the rail and the white on the suits. The last one is more acurate for how the pool looks when there.
