Anne from White Rock, Canada

Absolutely WOW! This is much better even than your last great shot - f22 has really improved the dof in this one and captured the sun better. I can see I shall have to work in RAW for some really great shots with Digital, it wasn't an option before with my film Nikon. What do you use to handle RAW. I have Adobe Photoshop Lightroom which works with RAW so I should give it a go. Wonderful stuff Jerry. :) :) :)

18 Apr 2007 2:10pm

@Anne: Thanks Anne - I always enjoy your reviews!!! I use CS2 and work in 16 bit instead of 8....AMAZING difference...If you have ever looked at Kathleen Connally's Walk though Durham Township - she uses same technique - gives you mountains more adjustments....
