I assume by the high ISO fast speed it is probably natural light. I never know how to WB natural indoor light. This looks good to my eyes. I will be watching what the more color aware regulars have to say. Good job on focus.
Ben, yes, it was available light, at night...that light was the lighting on the little kids ride she was on, and it was not very good. When shooting at 85mm on the 7D I like to keep my SS at 1/200, especially when she is the subject, she rarely stays still for more than a split second. That is what required the ISO 2000...too bad the 5D MKII arrived about three days later, it handles that ISO so much better. I probably could get away with some noise reduction on her face, but since I was going for the cinematic look, I did not want her skin to get too smooth, and un-natural looking.
The WB as seen here is done as part of the processing, and not really anywhere near what the original was, or what would be color correct, it is again part of the processing. Still working on that part...it is part of the look.
