Endura vs Crystal Archive skin tones

  1. I've been grumbling about my D300 blowing out highlights on faces ever since I started shooting portraits and weddings with it and having prints made. The highlights bloom heavily into yellow/white blotches when printed (not seeing it on my Eizo), even when I turned the contrast down on the RAW files in LR.

    I was using Meridian and Adorama for prints on Edura paper.

    I decided to send an order to H&H, which charges six times what Meridian does for 4X6 prints and about four times for enlargements.

    But wow, what a difference! They use Fuji Crystal Archive and no more blooming highlights.

    So, is it the paper or the lab? What are your thoughts and experience with the two?
