Drew, I think I am beginning to get some of this, but one thing that confuses me is: How do you know what filter to use? For example, in my sunlit scene of a barn in a field, where the distant hills are blue: My brain does not see it that way, so I can't really say, "Oh, this is an 8000 kelvin scene" or "I see it's 6,000 in the foreground, but 8,000 in the background" and adjust accordingly. Are we talking about intelligent guesswork in choosing an appropriate filter?
