The orange tunnel. Fuji X100

The color is caused by the extreme difference in color temperature of light sources: sodium vapor in the tunnel, evening shade outside. It would be impossible to get the right white balance for both – so a ‘middle value’ produces this effect. A pain when shooting something where color is important, or one of those interesting properties of optics that we photographers exploit from time to time…MT
