I don't believe the white balance was "messed". It was a difficult shot to process in Lightroom (v3, as it then was) because the MkIV is not that good at ISO2000 and the lighting conditions at the scene were, frankly, appalling. There was no direct light - it was all in a shaded gully. Some contrast was brought out in processing but I had no wish to overdo it and make it otherwise than it looked when I saw the scene.
I appreciate others may have different views.
