Here is a
.NEF plain file taken with a Nikon D7000, open in Camera Raw. Note that
sRGB IEC61966-2.1 It is chosen as the color profile. I have not modified any image settings.
The red ones are washed. Compare to the open image (such as a copy, using the button at the bottom) in Photoshop:
This is more similar to previewing the image on the camera's LCD screen, and how the Windows Photos application displays the image.
I know that any open image in any program has certain default values applied, which can make it look different. However, here the default values applied by Camera Raw are clearly correct, they just do not show up correctly until I open in Photoshop.
The camera is set to shoot in sRGB. If I tick
See> Test colors (RGB monitor) In Photoshop, nothing changes. If I set the profile in Adobe RGB (1998) or ProPhoto in Camera Raw, the colors seem more normal (like the second image), but this is not a solution since I need the profile to be sRGB. If I do it
Filter> Camera RAW filter ... In Photoshop, it shows the colors washed again, as in the first image.
Why the discrepancy between Camera Raw and Photoshop?
