Are those colours real??

Jeff Sullivan on April 25, 2007

Karolina, Yes, the colors are roughly the same in the "RAW" file straight from the camera's CCD imager, across a dozen or more shots. It's not an exact match with this JPEG file since there is white balance correction applied in the conversion. I did adjust the brightness and contrast, as well as boost the color saturation slightly (maybe 5%, enough to make the colors slighly more vivid but not enough to shift them far from their natural tone).

Great shot!!

Jeff Sullivan on June 27, 2007

Thanks, this is one that I chose to hang at 16" x 20" size on my own wall! It turned out well enough that I may print a slightly longer version of the shot to print at 20" x 30".

This picture is even better than swissbank's. I'm sorry but this picture is just so wonderful. The purple and brown come together and make one big and beautiful picture.

More than colors i'm impress by those shapes .Please tell me how can extract the "RAW" file from the camera?

Jeff Sullivan on May 19, 2008

Thank you all very much!

Cipicip, If your camera allows you to save a RAW file, it is probably in the same menu area that allows you to set JPEG resolution to "Fine", "Very Fine" and so on. Your camera manual will include the instructions. Many point-and-shoot and all DSLR cameras allow you to shoot in RAW mode, and you can decide when you read the photo into your editing software (Picasa, Photoshop Elements, et cetera) what white balance color adjustment you want to apply to the file. Often you can select a much better setting than the camera was going to automatically apply.

Amazing shot Congratulations!

Greetings from Greece

Evgenia Ko on May 21, 2008

Which editing software do you think is better when it comes to RAW conversion I'm pretty new at this but I have three different ones CS3, CaptureNX and aperure As of yesterday, I have a Nikon D300. I would be greatful if you could give me your expert opinion on this matter.

Thank you in advance. Beautiful gallery!

Cretu Ciprian on May 27, 2008
