Here is a jpeg straight from the camera... I see this one as particularly blue. What does it look like on your monitors?

Terrible. Try to set the gray point in PP to the guy’s cap.

Ok so it's not my monitor. It looks blue to you too?

Hope you don't mind. I ran your picture through Aftershot Pro and as Alfie suggested I set the white balance off of the guys gray cap. Definitely a white balance issue. I'd say the reds and greens where screwing up the AWB setting. Here is the corrected image.

Your subject is lit by a blue light source -- the open sky. The background is lit by the sun -- daylight color balance. The color balace the camera gave you seems to me to be a pretty OK compromise.

I adjusted my AWB +2 red +1 green and it seems to have done the trick.

Nice job on the photo edit!!!

Thanks! It only took a minute to do. Like I said. Give a gray card a try. Here's what I use.

Amazon.com: DGK Color Tools DGK-XL Extra Large Size 3 Card Set- 4-5 Inches Balance Card 18 Percent Digital Gray Card for Digital with Carry Lanyard-White: Camera & Photo

I set my white balance once for the lighting conditions I'm shooting in then I'm good to go. As I said I've been much happier with my colors since using the gray card.

That is far too yellow. On my calibrated monitor it needed backing off just a touch on the blue, just enough so that the almost burn-out sky doesn't turn yellow. And a small brightness tweak to lighten up the shadows, maybe. The camera WB wasn't far off actually. You could do much more if the file was RAW
