There are some rather unnatural halos that hint that the camera's internal sharpening goes up to the secret "11" mark: There is no real purpose shooting "raw" if you don't intend to spend significant time on the picture later...

Try adding some noise to the sky. This will ease the transitions between the bands of color. Here's a good reference for doing so: https://www.dpmag.com/how-to/tip-of-the-week/identifying-repairing-banding/

For what it's worth, here are tracking issues for popular open source raw converters: Darktable: https://github.com/darktable-org/darktable/issues/2170 Darktable's low-level "rawspeed" library: https://github.com/darktable-org/rawspeed/issues/121 Rawtherapee: https://github.com/Beep6581/RawTherapee/issues/5319 Libraw (another low-level library): current git ...

I recently bought a Canon 6D Mark II and had to upgrade to Lightroom CC 2015.12 / 6.12. The Mark II still works with CR2, but any previous versions of Lr won't recognise these, so I am afraid, your hope for further upgrades ends with Lightroom CC 2015.12 / 6.12 for that was the last upgrade you can get without having to buy a new license. As Adobe puts it "...

I heavily recommend Canon DPP, because most other software don't have the lens support. For example, the Canon 24-240mm lens is not widely supported, except by Canon DPP. Also, Canon DPP is the only software that has support for digital lens optimizer, which is an important and major feature that is able to correct lens imperfections. By not using Canon DPP,...

This is very broad & ultimately you're going to have to make the call yourself… Some points to consider. JPG can't use 16-bit. It technically supports 12-bit but most apps don't, so that's probably out. Consider JPG to be 8-bit for practical purposes. the Mac's preview is 'wrong' [for a given value of wrong]. CaptureNX-D knows exactly what the camera ...

Because when you look at an image on your screen you are almost certainly not looking at a literal depiction of the information contained in a raw image file, you are looking at one of near countless possible interpretations of the information contained in the raw file. Many of these interpretations are equally valid as a "correct" way to process the ...

This is normal. The software you are using is showing you the JPEG preview embedded in the RAW file, which in every case I know of the same as the JPEG generated with RAW + JPEG settings. (Depending on the preview, the resolution may be reduced and compression higher, but you won't notice this in a quick on-screen comparison.) For more on what a RAW file is ...
