LR vs DPP
I've been playing around alot lately in LR. I really like the interface, local editing, etc, but I must admit that overall I like the DPP results better as a RAW converter. This is even after downloading the Canon profiles for LR.
In LR I seem to have particular difficulty with skin tones - I seem to get alot of yellow/orange skin tones that I can't really fix with WB adjustment.
As of now I'm doing most of my RAW conversions in DPP, then using LR to make special adjustments on jpegs. I admit that sounds like a crazy workflow, but it seems to yield the best results.
Here's an example between DPP and LR...

LR conversion...(using Canon profiles and making typical LR edits)...
