Thanks R Fredrick,
Here is a sample that is mostly self explanatory. I did not change anything on the raw images. The previews would look exactly like this. No color or contrast changes. As you can see the colors and density are very close.
I kept the custom white balance on the last one I made, and the camera was on manual for exposure. I guess I am saying that the exposure is good originally. I am not sure how the colors will show up on a monitor, because I have not made any adjustments for that. The color and density on these is just about what I would send to my lab.
Had I shot the outdoor on jpg I am certain it would be very blue, because that is the nature of outdoor in the shade.
Left was made Jan 1 of this year. The right was Aug 28 of last year.
This was the reason for my question. I cannot tell much difference in these even though there is a big difference in the locations, etc.
