interesting results with Photo Ninja vs. LR4.  thanks for sharing the raw files.

i like the way PN processed your sample CR2 uploads with one exception -- the robots on the building picture.  you suggested the sky is wrong in the result from LR4 (agree, it is too cyan) yet the cloud result I get from PN seems worse -- the clouds are Blue!

i have fooled around with settings in PN and can't get it to do any better than blue clouds.  why is it that LR gets the clouds right (white).   are there settings in PN than can make it better or do you expect that would have to be cleaned up in photoshop?

PN explains what it tries to do in highlight recovery and why you can get blue cloud.

So, yes, you can get wrong colors and there is a easy way around it. Last few days I have extensively tried PN, processed more than 100 pics, in only two occasions it made a mistake (this example is one of them) with wrong color when recovering highlight. For this particular example use 'Absolute' as explained in this page:

I started this thread only after trying PN for few hours. Now, after using it for few days and going through the tutorials to know it better, I am convinced that PN is the best RAW converter around. Better or desired result in only a fraction of a time needed with other converter is its strength. It is still very young and there is room for improvement.

I will post more examples later.
