To most people, the image below is close to a perfect shot. However, if you look closely, or even try to compare with other photos with the correct color temperature, the problem instantly become obvious: The entire image is slightly shifted to RED.

Open up "Color Balance" under "Image > Adjustments".

Click on "Highlights" in "Tone Balance" and reduce RED to -35. Make sure you are not ever-done unless you are intended to do so.
