Yes. The solution is to make a profile with a higher Tint starting point. This one was called 40T - as it adds an extra 40 units of Tint before you start using the Lightroom controls. 


String’s problem is that Canon cameras in particular can add more tint in camera (more than +150) than you can in Lightroom (limited to +150). DPP supports this in the Canon RAW file. Lightroom does not. It is why I always tell Canon shooters to use RAW + JPG when shooting filters. Or use this work around. 


You can also achieve a similar affect with the sliders in the Camera Calibration module - but I find them fiddly to use. The Custom profile solution is one click simple and it s stored in Lightroom for future use. The profiles are Camera specific.

These are the Lightroom adjustments I made. It was only a quick process - so these were all I bothered with (the answer is in there - although not easy to spot):

I would be careful doing big WB colour adjustments on Graduated Filter/Brush Tool in Lightroom. To my eyes these work much more destructively to image quality than global adjustments of WB.

Here is a version of the turtle unprocessed and processed in Lightroom and only in Lightroom with a few clicks - (this is just a virtual copy of the original file):

What a cool piece of kit. The dome port/shades need to be rotated 90˚.
