White balance in photos.

I recently learned from klwalton about white balance in photos. The basic idea is that things which are white should look white — a simple idea, I'm sure, but something I didn't know about before.

So I've been trying to keep this in mind when post-processing my photos. Now, although there are tools to do this for you, it seems still to be quite a subjective art. This evening I was working on a photo I took of Clapham Common Tube station quite late yesterday evening (around 8:15pm). uon and I disagreed over whether the photo looked better with or without the white balancing; the obvious solution is a poll!

Which photo looks better?

56(73.7%)
6(7.9%)
Neither is better than the other
