sky color discrepancies in NX vs. saving as JPG

  1. Can someone explain this to me? Check out the screenshot. The left is the NEF, sky looks horrible. I tried to change the color but it didn't work out all to well. I changed the colorprofile to sRGB and saved as a JPG, and I got the beautiful color on the right image. Even without converting to sRGB I still get that nice blue color when saving as JPG. Why does my NEF look so horrible?


    Here's a better shot showing the color difference. NEF on the left, saved JPG from NX on the right.

  2. Okay, so I got these a bit closer by setting my monitor's color management to Adobe RGB....I'm hoping that's the only issue. Seems to be the worst on a blue sky.
