Hello! I shot some RAW pictures but seems have different exposures in Windows Photos and Lightroom. Can't figure out the real one. Please have a look at the attached image for reference. Thanks!

Is your screen calibrated with a hardware device like a Spyder or alike?

I am using LrC 11.3.1 and Windows 10 Pro. Haven't heard about the Spyder before.

It doesn't look like Windows Photos are colour managed like LrC is so that could be part of the problem. Also it is likely Photos is showing one of the previews embedded in the Raw file rather that the one created by LRC

Correct. This is apples and oranges because the raw file in Lightroom is not edited (or not the same). Windows Photos will show a camera-embedded preview. The whole idea of shooting in raw is that you have full control over what the final image will look like, but it does mean you'll have to do something with that image. Lower the exposure, or lower the whites, to start with.
