What do you think of this?
I chose the "Camera Faithful" profile under Camera Calibration. The settings can be seen in this before/after comparison:
Certainly improved over the unprocessed RAW, but still not fully detailed. I can much around the whites and blacks only and get it to where I want it, my issue is, why do I have to much around with it anyway. Is there an in body setting or LR profile I can use?
I think McGyver has some good ideas too.... the blues and yellows might be the issue and in trying to fix those, the raw converter over saturates the reds.
I tried the alt+white or black slider trick and while is made the reds better, the rest of the photo became unappealing.
I like my rendition (3rd shot) where I reduced both black and whites... and show the LR settings
Great discussion guys.
