Thanks folks. Jonny, RAW is the way to go, I've never used anything else and now I can revisit old files with new methods and software.

that is some sky and the yellows you've pulled out are fantastic. nice swan action - good to see them actually doing something

the bottom left looks artificially bright for some reason, tone mapping or dodging maybe?
Wooly 10 112 4 England
5 Apr 2008 6:06PM
Thanks again.

Must be tone mapping Ade, coz I've not touched it with the dodge tool.

Cheers Alan
