2- Do a double raw conversion and mask the reds. Most effective

What does "double raw conversion" mean?

Convert once optimizing the EC for one part of the image (e.g., the sky, in lieu of using an ND filter), and then again optimizing for some other part of the image (e.g., a dark foreground, or a bright red rose).

And that assumes Photoshop and Smart Objects? Fair enough. I had missed that the OP already had PS.

My experience is that red oversaturation is less of a problem if one uses View NX or Capture NX. If one has Capture NX one can of course also use control points and adjust saturation or exposure locally directly.
