Thanks for the kind words, although I feel as if I am not deserving yet of such high praise, lol. My images look pretty close to in camera, because I usually shoot with a strobe and a modifier, if not I always use a big reflector. I often shoot wide open, so I incorporate alot of high speed sync. I usually use ACR to process my raw images in a certain sequence, starting with WB, exposure (with clipping warnings on), brightness, blacks and fill. I always pay close attention to the histogram in raw. Most of the time though, because I like getting the exposure right in camera, the only thing I tweak in raw is white balance before I transfer the image to photoshop. You can pm me if u have any specific questions.
