I'm sure that's not his real name, but he reminds me of the Elvis Presley song! My father might know, as this was taken at the lakeside in Llandrindod Wells, and this may be a friend of Tammy's!!

V2 is a mono version.

Thanks for the comments on my rust and grot shot! Appreciated as always!

Colour for me Carol and love the expression: "done that; what's next Smile"
Is there any chance with the jpeg to lighten the shadows a bit and recover some of the detail in the highlights?

Hi Tim, thanks for your comments. I did lighten the shadows slightly as they were VERY dark - maybe I should have done it a little more. As for the highlights, unfortunately this detail was lost at the moment of capture, but I have darkened it as much as I could. Thank you for your observations though, always appreciated.

Hi Carol
Sadly I was guessing that might be the case given that it was both the shadows and the highlights being clipped - nowhere to go once both ends of the range are exceeded in a high contrast scene like this.
RAW instead of jpeg would have given you a bit more scope, but I see your camera doesn't have that (despite an early review saying that it did Sad), but reviews do mention an "i-Contrast" mode that might be worth a try in cases like this when you got both very dark and very bright elements in the shot?

Hi again Tim, I am hoping that one day I will be able to afford something like a Nikon D90 to enable me to shoot RAW. In the meantime, I find that in most situations the Canon SX20 takes great JPEGs, but I have never tried out the i-contrast mode - I'll have to see if I can find it!! Wink Thanks again for your advice.

Like you, I am the proud owner of a Canon Powershot SX20. I have discovered the Canon Hack Development Kit, free software which can be downloaded from chdk.wikia.com. Having installed CHDK on my memory card, I can now shoot in RAW with my Powershot. Mind you, that is not the only benefit of the software. I can only recommend you visit the website to see the other benefits.
