Yes, that's exactly what I'm doing. I develop a RAW image with the target dominating the frame with a TIFF file as the output. I feed that TIFF file to Argyll to build a profile, and then apply that profile to the exact same TIFF file.

If I create the TIFF file with ACR with the image close to the proper exposure, white balance, etc., the results are great. When I create a linear TIFF file with dcraw...well...it's not even close.
