A suggestion for the White Balance selector tool. It would be good to have the option to make a white balance correction from a marquee selection as well as the single point selector, similar to what Nikon Capture allows. I find this gives a much better result rather than the single point which tends to give varying results depending on which pixel you click on. In all other regards I find Lightroom an excellent product and now use it for 99% of my image editing.

I totally second that. Also having color noise reduction earlier than WB in the pipeline would help a lot more in getting accurate results..

You can increase or decrease the pixel count in the picker, which help you find the neutral you seek.

That's not true. It's just a visual thing, the value reading doesn't change! Try that for yourself, you'll notice there is no difference in readings.

Yes that is right, increasing or deceasing the pixel count seems to just be a visual thing to allow you to zoom in on the area you choose. It doesn't make any difference to the WB result.
