DP2M users, what are your SPP preferences?
2

Just wondering which settings other DP2M users go for in SPP.
Do you have a default preset or do you change a lot from image to image?

I try to find a default I like and adjust a bit from there, but the preset has changed over time as I discover something I think works better.

This is my current starting point for color images:

Exposure: Set to taste
Contrast: 0
Shadow: -0.8
Highlight: 0
Saturation: -0.2
Sharpness: -0.8, for portraits I go to -2.0
X3 Fill Light: +0.1

White balance: Daylight

Color mode: Portrait

Color adjust: +10 blue, +8 magenta

Noise reduction:
Chroma: 3 (middle)
Luminance: 3 (middle), for portraits I go to 4 (one right from middle)
Banding: 4 (one right from middle)

I'm really liking these settings, here's a couple of samples.

I've also put up the X3F files if others want to play with them and maybe show how their preferred SPP settings look on these images.
