Nothing wrong with it, my personal preference is a tad warmer, to each his own.

Thanks everyone. I have been a long time DPP user but recently have been experimenting with with ACR quite a bit. I like the NR better using ACR and it has a few more features than DPP. Generally Adobe has come a long way in the last few years.

I never liked the skin tones in ACR (too yellow for me) and recently got a few tips so I have been playing around with it. I have to say I'm very pleased with the results and was wondering what other people thought. The feedback has been helpful.

Sure. Start at post #30. This was Option #2 and the vibrance was about -23. I imported the DPP camera profiles into ACR and used landscape.

That was not the first time I had heard about using camera landscape. I also noticed that it gives the images a bit of an extra glow. You lose a bit of sharpness setting the clarity to -10 but it really smoothens out the skin texture. Hides the blemishes, etc. I'm pretty excited as well as I have been looking for something like this for some time now.
