Ellicott City after dark

Getting the correct, or acceptable, color balance of a scene at night is a challenge. Too red shows off tungsten illumination, while green shows off flourescent lighting. But getting a building’s stones to look like they do during the day sometimes takes a bit of luck. This one worked with “Auto WhiteBalannce”
