Also highlight detail, sharpness and noise reduction settings are locked in. Looking at your LR settings for the raw, I would suggest you take the highlight slider well down as that should recover some highlight detail (although the histo is showing max white at about 90% which is low so you are definitely losing highlight detail ). My guess is the problem is with the lighting. Full frontal sunlight is not ideal for showing texture and detail. Thanks MDM, I've given up on this raw file, I just can't get the colours looking realistic. Agree that it's the lighting - too harsh. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
