Rick Walker I'm not a big one for canned recipes - what's that saying about giving a poor man a bowl or teaching him to fish - nor have I ever felt Nikon Capture's colours were objectively better than ACR's.

But it is a question I keep asking myself, just in case, so here's another Lightroom preset that uses the Develop settings Rick Walker describes in this Nikonians thread as his Nikon Capture Mode IIIa effect. If this colour rendition really works for you, then it's a simple task to apply it to all images upon import to Lightroom.

I really enjoyed the pictures at Rick Walker's site too.
