      Hello, I would like to know what would be the white point, in a XYZ colour space, of an image taken in the shade. I assume it would be a of higher temperature (bluer) than the normal daylight.

          "In the shade" isn't a defined, unambiguous condition. It depends on the cloud cover, time of day, reflection from the surroundings etc. Yes, the temperature would be higher because the light source is the blue sky in addition to / instead of direct sunlight, but it's a wide range up to, say, 10000K or so. It would have to be determined in each specific instance.
