Re: Need some CC on a few shots - Thank you

I'd like to see what lightroom can do with this one.  The sand is tough without losing the water and sky

First, buy and learn how to use Lightroom! It will let you get the JPGs to look as good as the RAW files - in fact, you should be able to get them better as you can recover detail in the highlights and in the shadows. Second, understand color spaces/printer profiles. Third, by the tools to calibrate your monitor (the Colorvision Spyder 4 Pro will cost you less than $200).

With a calibrated monitor and a better understanding of color spaces/profiles, you'll see a huge improvement in the look of your final images.

Finally, buy a backup lens - maybe something like the Canon 18-200mm. While the latter isn't a great lens, stopped down in bright light is is OK, and could work as a backup for either of your lenses. Plus, you could leave that on your 60D for time when you quickly needed something wider /longer than the lens on your 7D.

Any insults, implied anger, bad grammar and bad spelling, are entirely unintentionalal. Sorry.

Jeff, Thank you. I'm looking into Lightroom based on your advice. And.... another lens to backup my 200 2.8L, 17-552.8 and 50 1.8.

Thank you!!!
