    I took these images today and used the color checker by sampleing the white, gray, & black points in capture's curves using the eyedropper tools. Here is the comparison, what do you think???

    Took a photo of the color chart on the groud to sample the same light that fell on the trees.

    Go here to see the 100% crop and sharpness of the 50mm F/1.4 lens. That lens is soooo sharp!

    I have to agree that the 2nd shot has richer colors.

    I wonder what would happen if you used that to do a WB preset?

    I did use it for WB preset, it is the fourth gray square to the right, I also set the white and black points for the contrast. I do use the 18% gray for WB.
