So I tried shooting some raws. Not sure if it's quite my thing. On the one hand I feel kind of relaxed while I don't have to care so much about the exposures and white balances, but on the other hand I feel like photographing isn't as real as it could be. It doesn't feel like i'm catching a moment, feels more like I'm collecting data for a project or something. So, there's some of the photos I took and did some heavy photoshopping with, kind of wanted to see and learn a bit what's this raw editing about.
well done taking in raw. I think raws is the real photograhing in fact. Time ago photographers could "fix" the exposure also in the dark room, after taking the picture. Moreover using some acids than others could change the colours and give a particular tone to the picture as well.
I'd rather take in raw and work afterwards instead point and shoot like a jpeg. It somehow recalls to me that time inside a dark room, but now it is in front of a computer. Well...good testing anyway ^^, and the results are pretty good :). #1 is great!
I like this set and all the different colors in it :)

interesting thought... amrvellous outcome of these pictures. RAW is, indeed, "raw" collection of data; as in your brain, the man-built software and it's translating algorhythms that makes a jpeg of tiff file out of the raw data, is an interpretation of some CMOS sensor input values.
it is the distinct merit of the photographer to make this translation into something worth seeing... as you have demonstrated here very well. :-)
