'a week in' !
I dont own leaf or Canon or know those softwares.
But what I do know is that my Kodak SLRn is badly affected.
Using the Photodesk software
Having got CS I have found that processing my Kodak files in ACR can work wonders in a way that 'desk couldnt
Can you open leaf in ACR - I dont know ?
Depending on how many files you output you could try (and I have) just drawing round the offending areas with smally feathered lasso and massivly desaturating the colour
The level of sharpening you use will affect it too - have you played with that - processing out totally unsharpened images, doing your fiddling and adding sharpening last
Also maybe you need to turn down the flashes that dramatically sweep across many of your subjects cheekbones (LOL)
I try to have NO 255 255 255 in my raw files
One of the beauties of the 16bit file is that you can punch up the mids better without too much damage so maybe you need to expose less or slightly lower your lighting ratios - start with a flatter exposue than you are used to and add punch in post??
(then you may want to sling the slow synching mam in the bin and get an H1/2/3/4/5 OMG)
