Hello, I took this shot today:

Everything is fine except when I compare the raw in Lightroom, Camera Raw and DPP:

So now I have no idea which to trust. This is not the only image that has had this happen. I can see little color differences with other images as well. I was hoping one of you could help me figure out why this is happening. Thanks.

Different RAW converters will process your RAW file differently. There's nothing there about "trust". If you want your photo to look exactly the same on any and every machine, shoot in JPEG.

Thanks for Your reply. I was afraid it might have something to do with color profiles at first. Good that it's not though.

I like the way my Nikon software processes my RAW files. The RAW files I get out of photoshop look flat and boring.

I would like to enlarge that theme with something I noticed- sharpness has the same different appearing in ACR and DPP, even more, when use Adobe Camera Raw, pictures look sharp. After converting it to TIF they look more blurred than I saw it just a second before in ACR. Does somebody have explanation about that "phenomena"?

Yeah, the Adobe RAW converter isn't as good as your camera's. Use the software that comes with your brand of camera and you'll get the most detail possible. What I do is open up my RAW file in ViewNX and then convert it to a 16bit TIFF. Then I take it into Photoshop as a TIFF to edit. That way I keep the most detail possible.

That's because each different program uses a different de-mosaic algorithm. I'm personally quite a huge fan of Rawtherapee's demosaic algorithm, particularly because it gives my high ISO shots a very nice "grain" whereas Adobe's ACR smudges it.

Thanx for responds... well, it's clear, but I wander why ACR which is a Photoshop plugin is showing a clear, sharp picture and later in Photoshop a blurred one?
