I hope folks are still following this thread because I too learned a lot from reading the comments but still have one question. It appears I've been spending way too much time making profiles under various daylight conditions, eg cloudy, open shade, and rarely in the Pacific Northwest, sunny.
When I make a profile, it appears I still need to adjust white balance in LR, using the gray panels on the Color Checker Passport. Is that really the case or am I still misunderstanding something.
Thanks for any replies. This has been a most useful thread.
