Between all the infrared and regular color, I guess I’ve got a lot to go through for the color gallery.  One tip that has helped me a lot.  I’ve mentioned the Adobe DNG Profiler several times.  And how they’ve got starting profiles (recipes).

One thing that I didn’t mention is that I think that Lightroom II also has these “starter” profiles in the Camera Calibration tab.

For the Canon 40D, for example, you’ve got the following (beta) profiles: faithful, neutral, portrait, and landscape.  I’ve found that “neutral” and “landscape” give me a good place to begin before doing whatever corrections are necessary.

Great shot.
The Nikon have similar profiles and also a “auto” which on the D 80 is very smart as to its ability to get the white balance right.

Craig. Thanks. But if you are in Photoshop, or Lightroom, and you have a RAW nikon file, can you select that profile in Camera Calibration. Those profiles only have influence if you are shooting jpgs?
