Fuji Profiles for Portraits

One of the questions about the new Fuji profiles in Lightroom 5.4 was about how Lightroom now handles skin tones from Fuji Raw files. X cameras render skin tones beautifully. Lightrooms render has been less than stellar in comparison. Now with the profiles, there are far more options than before. In order to answer the question, I made a few comparison shots.

Choice of profile for skin tones is very subjective. It may be that you prefer the muted look of Pro Neg Std over Provia as a better start point for processing.
