Auto setting is close, but the daylight setting is closest to the actual tones. The building is not as creamy white as interpreted by the cloudy setting.

The daylight setting seems to have a blue cast, and while the auto setting comes close the cloudy setting is the most accurate image.

Cloudy is clearly the best representation, showing the greenish tinge in the Thames and the grey in the clouds.
