Muddy Greenish Cast to K-1 photos.

This was probably an accidentally changed setting, easy to fix, but I've never found the answer
on my own. So it's probably an easy noob question. I expect a "duh" moment.

Every one of my pictures from a trip last June exhibit this muddy greenish hue. I assume that
it is most likely some camera setting. I'd like to avoid this problem in the future for obvious
reasons. Any ideas?

Thankfully I shot raw+, but I now have additional processing for all the photos.

The light is pretty dull anyway, and contrast is probably not helped by shooting through a plane window. They are not renowned for extreme clarity

Granted. They may even be tinted.

This was a two week trip, and all photos taken with the K-1 exhibit this to a greater or lesser depending
on the lighting. So not just through windows.

This is outside the window.

If you don't know what you altered, we can't from out here!

Just do a factory settings reset to make sure it's gone, and put back the settings you want.

White balance setting?

Had a feeling that was going to be the answer. I reset things a while back, and it fixed the
problem.

Just hoped someone else had run across this and could give me an idea of what to avoid.

Thanks for looking.

I don't recall changing it from auto. If I did, it was accidental.

Forgot to mention that it was actually pretty bright. Was worried for my eyes when I got
out of the plane on the glacier. Had exposure compensation enabled to keep from
blowing things out since the K-1 does so well with shadows.

Here's an update. I'd like to thank you all for replying. Appreciate it.

The question about white balance gave me the key to my issue. I
looked up the metadata in two different viewers, and each says the
photos have a manual white balance. I cannot recreate the look with
the standard ones (daylight, shadow, florescent), so I must have
fumblefingered my way into the advanced settings and changed it.

I do recall some initial frustrations going from the K-5 series to the K-1,
and accidentally changing some things. Don't recall being anywhere
near the white balance area, but I'm the only one that used the camera!

"duh!"

Thanks!

Roger

If you carry the camera over your shoulder, the buttons on the back could have bumped against your body and changed the white balance settings. Or maybe they could have been bumped if you carry your camera a different way.
