FIX-IT-FRIDAY #75 ~ "Autumn Orchard Fun"


Original

This weeks original was sweet, but a bit of a challenge.
Wesley is a touch blurry and the colours are pretty cool (as in chilly).
I felt that as the autumn colours behind were probably nothing like this, it need some warming up.

This week we were also able to download the RAW file, so I thought I'd have a go at comparing edits between JPG & RAW ~ you know, just so I know for the future...

All edits done in LightRoom3 (except the RAW conversion because I don't have the plugin to open the RAW in LR3).

JPG's

#1

(I have left the settings for the graduated filter open on the right for you to see ~ just tried this out for the first time today :D)

I have to confess to my own surprise at the difference between JPG and RAW.
The RAW was so much easier to take out the noise and sharpen up and the colours definitely seemed to stay truer when I started fiddling.
I don't have a choice just now and for carefully calculated shots I'm not sure JPG will be so different, but I can see that for 'on the fly' shot RAW is much better for making those correction that salvage a photo!

If you can't see any of the histories very well, just click to see them bigger (middle click for a new tab of course) :D

I like that first shot you did the best. I wanted a little more fall color in the shot too. I love how yours turned out. :)
