Problem: Mixed Light Sources

Reason: You bounced your flash off a surface such as a colored wall or ceiling, and the pictures picked up the color of that surface. Or, you took an indoor picture with plenty of tungsten light, but the subject is near a window and is partially illuminated by daylight. Mixed lighting also occurs when strobe shots are influenced by room lighting or fluorescents.

Solution: Avoid these situations. If some of your image is illuminated by the colored bounce flash, or daylight streaming in through a window, and other portions by another light source, you'll find it very difficult to make corrections. Investigate turning that picture into an "arty" shot.
