When I open a raw file taken with my Nikon D810,  the photos look very flat and dull.  Is this normal behavior with RAW files or am I doing something wrong?  When I open them in other applications,  they look as I would expect them to.

I've attached a screenshot and a copy of the RAW file to help troublshoot my quesiton.  Left is a different application (whose name shall not be mentioned) and Affinity Photo is on the right.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

I'm using Affinity Photo for Windows version and my computer is on Windows 10 with 32gigs of memory.

turn on the assistant manager, and the picture looks more alive similar to ARC.
