I have a Nikon D90. I have it set to Active D Lighting Auto on the D90. Most of my pictures are outdoors with high dynamic range. When I import the RAW into aperture the pictures appear over exposed and flat (jpegs appear fine). Another user in the D90 forum suggested Active D Lighting might be the culprit.

I bought (looks like wasted a couple of bucks) a preset to mimic Active D lighting but it makes the pictures look worse.

Any suggestions on creating a preset specific to Active D Lighting or is this a picture by picture adjustment. It appears the adjustments are exposure and highlights and shadows?
