not much to work with ... but ...

That's rather a decent sensor, so you can get a reasonable postage stamp image with enough work ... but as others have said, it's a brutal exposure. One presumes that you have good exposures and that this was just an experiment ... EDIT: I see that this was just the first exposure after you had been at a sports event. Fair enough. By the way, this was all LR5 and the ORF.

I did a food shoot not long ago and it went very well. This was my first test shots I was trying out at the restaurant. I have two files here. The picture of the nachos was very underexposed. I mainly am a JPG shooter, somtimes raw, but I thought this would be a good time to try out how good RAW really can pull detail out of severely underexposed images. I found out I'm not up to par on doing this.

This is the JPG +5.5 exposure compensation

RAW file +5.5 exposure and auto correct.

I got a lot more detail out of the jpg, especially out of the shadow areas, than I could out of the RAW file.

I guess I really don't know what I'm doing. RAW's are always supposed to have more information.

The original files are here if you want to give it a go and help me do better with RAW.
