I was working on the skin detection in OpenCV.I am using YCrCb color range for detection.It was working fine for most of the image but in one case it was not working. Image Not Working

So I tried to do some adjustment in the images because you can see that skin color range is not even visible,so I edited the pic in Windows Photos Application in Window 8.In that software I changed "color->Temperature" setting and set the value to 80 or something. The output image was this.

Now the Skin detection works perfectly fine.Can anyone explain me the temperature parameter used in Photos app and what it exactly does?
