I am having trouble with my photos being grainy and not crisp and clear. Im not sure if its something I am doing in lightroom, or with my camera? They look fine through my viewfinder-I try not to shoot over ISO400 and definitily never go over ISO800. I have a Canon 6D. Once in lightroom they dont look 'professional' quality. They're grainy and not crisp and clear. I've tried adjust noise, sharpening etc. but it just seems to be once I've imported? I'm using LRC. I have attached a close up of an image I am talking about. ISO400, F5.6, 1/250 and RAW Thanks

I don't know if you have done in the processing in Lightroom on this image. I don't know what level of magnification you are displaying, I'm assuming this is possibly a 1:1 section. If it is then, frankly, I think that is about typical. That isn't the normal magnification that images are displayed. That IS a good magnification to choose to optimize sharpness and noise reduction, etc. Also, you must remember that when looking at the image in the viewfinder on the back of your camera it is displaying the embedded JPEG preview which has been processed by the camera. Lightroom is displaying the raw data, and that has to be optimized by you.
