These aren't simply underexposed. They're total failures of exposure. The shutter speed was way to high, ISO low, inappropriate for that objective. And the results from the developing attempt is just horrible.

Don't shoot for RAW until you come to understand how to make a decent exposure for JPGs that don't need extreme corrections post-exposure. RAW isn't for fixing bad exposures and techniques, it's an aide for good techniques that call for post-exposure development.

Oh, I didn't keep them at all. It was just the first shot that after coming from a sports event. The other pictures are near perfect from the JPGs.

I was just seeing how people get results from RAW when the picture is a completely failure on exposure. Did you use the RAW or JPG?

The ORF file.
