Problems with normal

Hi everyone

I'm working on a project and need to make normals for my low poly model. Well I managed to bake normals but I have this weird problem. Whats causing this and how can I fix it?

my guess would be 'smoothing' normals.
Try softening the normals on the low poly mesh before baking normal map.

Hope it helps,

I managed to fix this problem. Problem was that when I opened normal in photoshop it turned too dark and I had to change brightness and levels for each channel to match with original normal.

PS: It took a whole week to finally validate this post? Pff...
