Thanks,

Is there a recommended standard shift in the Lightroom color defaults
that you can give me to get me started?

Brian, Here is a K10D calibration Barry Pearson did for Lightroom & Photoshop using Fors script

I have tried it and am happy with the results. Lightroom has a "Pentax 1.0" profile which I found to be poor. You can save the calibration along with your other import settings as a "preset" so the settings are applied on import automatically. If you get your "presets" worked out properly your editing gets a lot quicker and consistent too.

You can try it yourself by getting the Photoshop plugin here: http://www.fors.net/chromoholics/

Overall I am now very happy with the Lightroom results (and overall it is a killer application) and so have retired Silkypix again - I am liking Lightroom better.

Phase One has released their beta of Capture One 4 and as a long term fan I had to try it out (now they finally support DNG) - the final release of version 4 is going to be simply superb I think. The beta version is already a great RAW development tool. IQ is very high
