Hey, I went to Parramatta High.....and was familiar with that area so much when I was younger....I can see this bridge, but for the life of me can't recall where it is.......is it part of parramatta Park? cheers, jen
Shooting raw has been drummed into me by a few people too. My camera has the ability to shoot both RAW and JPEG so I have it set to take both. A lot of the time I only use the JPEG file as I don't have a lot of time for processing and I still have a lot to learn.
The RAW files do give you more control and flexibility. You can create a few different exposures from the one RAW file, say one for the sky and one for the foreground and then combine them in photoshop.
I only use photomatix for trying to make HDR's or blending exposures.
I develop my RAW files either using the Olympus software that came with the camera or photoshop.
Hmm... not going to lie to you Malcolm; I think the other one was more visually interesting. This one I thought was a drawing or something when I saw it; I don't know, just seems flatter. Still a great picture. And still a well deserved .
