I shoot with Nikon D3 and generally do raw converting in NX2 - I find it much quicker than ACR (which I also really like) once you get used to all the features I just can't correct images as fast in camera raw. Often using Nik tools during the raw processing with NX2 since you can no longer use the Nik plug in 64bit Photoshop, I still find it difficult to get all I want out of my images with Adobe capture raw so I keep returning to Capture NX2 which I admit has it's issues, but I digress.
I have noticed that the blue sky is often has a darker edge around bright white buildings.
Recently shooting the white buildings in Santorini against a deep blue sky with a Nikon 24mm tilt shift lens the sky around the buildings was dramatically darker and quite frankly irritating. The problem was aggravated by improving the contrast.
The darkening effect was much more subtle when processed in CS5 camera raw, but the color of the sky was just not as accurate and the images just don't seem to "pop" in camera raw.
The images were fixed in photoshop by masking the buildings and using the clone tool to smooth out the sky, but time consuming.
Has anyone else found this issue with Capture NX2 or solution to the problem, or is this a camera/lens/sensor issue?
