    Not sure about this, but it sounds as though your default white balance is off. In your RAW editor try reducing the WB setting to see if the colours correct. What WB setting do you use as default? Remember the ability to adjust WB post shot is one of the big advantages of RAW.

    generally i'm on the auto whitebalence, its takes about 4 changes to sort the pink, it goes grey if you over do any stage, like a fake painted light grey.

    Sorry for the delay in responding. I don't know if you shoot in RAW, but if not give it a go. This will enable you to custom select the WB you need. I use Lightroom and it provides me with a great deal of flexibility to adjust the white balance tones. An alternative is to buy a WB filter - I haven't tried them, but the reviews I've read are good (bu they are pricey). Basically these allow you to set the correct WB in any lighting conditions using your cameras custom WB setting.

    Hope this is of some help...
