Benifits of jpegs !

Started my DSLR career with a K100d, moved up to a K20d and now own a K5.

I have always used Raw for personal photos and most of the paid work as well. However, I have to admit that doing Raw work late into the night to meet deadlines
lost its appeal a long time ago.

With my K5 I have spent time trying to get 'good' jpegs straight out of the camera. These shots are all straight from the camera after re-sizing. I have gone for a very slightly saturated look, all shots taken indoors (it happens to be a wet day). I will post outdoor shots as soon as possible.

If this set up works OK, the amount of PP work will be greatly reduced and I will be able to spend more time taking pictures. Ah - bliss.

Settings :-
Saturation +2
High/Low key +2
Contrast +3
Sharpness +3

Highlight Correction - On
Shadow Correction - Low
