fujifilm X-M1: RAW Tone Curve profile

Tex adds: I'll be rigorously enforcing this as we go along. We're probably going to be a small community in a little lifeboat, so we can't have members at each others' throats. This is for the sake of the project as a whole. So when you post, pretend you're speaking in person with your very wealthy auntie who has always treated you wonderfully and currently lists you prominently in her will. I won't be tossing anyone out of the forums because we are all in this together (except spammers: immediate membership cancelation), but I'll delete suspect posts right away.

the tone curve has been

the tone curve has been tweaked with the following values:

229-150-92-49-22-7

however the picture seems a bit dull imho.

In LightZone, dull is good! 

In LightZone, dull is good!  At least for the default , initial conversion.  You can always add your own tweaking , color, contrast, and sharpening, and save it as a style to be applied to your raws either individually in the editor or as a batch process through the browser.  You can even have multiple raw styles for different sorts of images: portraits, landscapes, architectural, high contrast, low contrast, & etc.
