      My question is hard to explain other than looking at the photo above here and wondering, "is this normal? Is this because of my photo or because of Lightroom?"


      Sometimes when I'm editing a darker photo in the develop module, LR seems to process noise from the photos differently resulting in (sometimes) really ugly black pepper like noise or black color splotches that kind of ruins the photo. If its just my camera or photo or the way I'm editing the photo, great - I'll accept a bad photo and please let me know what I'm doing wrong here. But if LR is processing the photo in such a way that it's putting emphasis on the noise in the photos, I'd like to know how to not do this again. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!
