QPcard vs. ColorChecker Passport vs. Adobe Camera Profiles

I've been playing with creating Camera Color Profiles for Lightroom 4 and ACR with a QPcard 203 and QPcalibration software to compare it with profiles created with a ColorChecker Passport and X-Rite Software.

This is not a rigorous nor complete test. It is just some comparisons of various flower colors in bright sunlight. I figured that would be an interesting challenge. The first post will deal with some red and crimson geraniums. None of them quite nailed the red colors. The greens look right, but the reds need more blue. The flowers on the left are your standard red geraniums with a good intense fire engine red. The ones on the right are a deeper crimson red (a touch more blue than fire engine red).

The next message will deal with the tricky purple of a morning glory.

All shots with a D800E. This one was done with a Nikon 24-70mm lens.
