Re: Slightly OT raw converter discussion

You've blown the sky out completely. I'd love to have the RAW file, this type of shot is the hardest to get right and shooting JPG can't do it but RAW can and I get loads of practice at it in the UK:-)

I think the 2 things most obviously needed in the original are highlight control and a boost in sharpening, but not the usual sharpening - a large radius one would help a lot to get the contrast higher in a nice way.

I can't say I'm over impressed by the Irfanview version with its green sea but I believe I know what the OP is looking for.

I will send you the raw  image if you like. I would really be interested in seeing the results. As you say (and I think I said when I posted the image), it is not the easiest of shots to work with.

I am not overly impressed with the Irfanview version either, but Irfanview did in 10 secconds what would have taken me 10-20 minutes without any guarantee of better results.
