When post processing, which software do you prefer to use and why?
I used to use Photoshop all the time. However, when I started shooting in RAW, I needed to use Capture NX even though I hated how much of a RAM and CPU hog it was. However as I used it more and more, I noticed that it was easier for me to get the look I wanted to get using Capture in less time. After sharpening, the noise reduction seems to keep more of the detail while at the same time, give my photos a smooth soft look to the light that could take forever trying to achieve in PS. I even went back and started re-editing older photos using capture because I like the look it gives to the images. I now use Capture NX exclusively for post processing. This is backwards from most people I know. Most other people I know do not like Capture NX and say it's harder to use. I personally find it easier to use.
