Hi,

I usually use LR for raw conversion, but the other day I had the opportunity to use DxO 5.3.2 Pro for Canon 5D Mk2 with 24-105L IS, instead LR. In general I liked much more DxO than LR for raw conversion, DxO lens correction and batch capabilities are invaluable and made me save a lot of time, but make sure to review the converted images because, in some cases, DxO failed to properly convert the image (to be fair, just 1 frame in 500).

No ask for a solution (I used LR for that particular image), just want to share the information.

If you look at the 100% crop images, the area within the power tower frame, or in between wires, are visibly darker than the exterior area in the DxO conversion. The LR image looks good.

Since I bracketed the image, I checked the next  image (+1) to discover that both, DxO and LR converted it properly.

Looks like a program fault. Make sure you carefully review the converted images.

I too have seen variations on this effect. It depends on the subject and how you set the highlight recovery and the DXO Lighting.

Simply turn off DXO lighting for that shot. Sometimes it works real good on an image, sometimes you don't want it lighting up the dark areas any. Simple choice.
