Fantastic capture of this character. I can almost hear him panting after rushing around in a successful attempt to get himself dirty. Great detail in your shot.

What a wonderful looking dog ... he really has seen life..
Great shot from you and think the colour version is getting that click today ... but only just
We had a dog just like that when we were children, called Lassie. Love your shot Carol, V1 is my favourite.

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?

Tim



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.
