PPA's definition of Color Balance: supplies harmony to an image. An image in which the tones work together, effectively supporting the image, can enhance it's emotional appeal. Color balance is not always harmonious and can be used to evoke diverse feelings for effect.

A few tips:
1. Learn White Balance: This is hyper-critical to your success as a photographer. If you don't understand white balance and how to get correct color in your images... go get help.
2. Play with using opposing colors on the color wheel to create nice color harmony.
3. Once you have your white balance figured out on your camera and your monitor calibrated ... now you can play around with warming up or cooling down your images for effect. But you have to understand how to get correct color first, before you can break the rules effectively.

If you have an image that you feel demonstrates good color balance, please share it below.
