In the spirit of Gerrard's generosity
Aug 4, 2014

I've always been impressed with forum member Gerrard's contributions, they have proven useful for sharpening my own meager skill levels.

I'm offering a problematic raw file for forum members practice use. I hope that it will be useful for some of our newer participants. The problems are not insurmountable, but they exist.

Some of the problems:

1.Photo taken with the least capable of my lenses. 2.Photo taken in mixed artificial lighting ( see the second link for grey balance assistance). 3.Lens vignetting. 4.Lack of optimal sharpness (see problem one). 5. Noise, the shot was taken at ISO 2000 and bringing up shadow levels can lessen sharpness and contrast.

The subject matter is of the mundane variety i.e. a quick grab shot of commuters on a train platform, but may prove interesting to members not exposed to big city atmospheres.

The following link is my processed jpg. The raw file was developed in DxO Pro 9 then finished in Photoshop CC2014. No heroic efforts were taken during the post processing edit procedures.

Please post your edits and of course comments and constructive criticism are always welcomed.
