Yep, ISO 5000, F/1.4 50 mm, darkness all around, I couldn't get the old D600 to focus in that place
Seeing as how it's turning into a bit of a free for all
I'll stick up a few photos for people to pick and choose what they want to do.
I shoot wide open so there is a lot of softness and vignetting.
Along with some large dynamic ranges.
Interested to see how people approach these
Lake Landscape 1
Lake Landscape 2
Dog Collie Portrait
Dog Ridgeback Portrait
Well, what was next in line? I thought the bar shot was? I don't have anymore to post (raw). Sorry Whammy!!!!!! lol
I don't know I'm losing track myself
Ha, this is the best place to lose track and go nuts!
FREE FOR ALL EVERYBODY GO GO GO
The idea is for it to be fun, we'll rely on the structure again when the novelty wears off a bit
My go at ihunda's. I went for n instant look but took it easy on the grain heh.
SSO RAW Challenge 1 by NickNickNickHowlett, on Flickr
Where am I supposed to put my RAW picture for you to play with it?
I did an edit on Whammy's "Broken Car", because his was the last post I saw with a RAW file posted. Here's my raw file of a bike!
Put it on DropBox. Click the chain link icon to share the link, then close the window that prompts you to upload it to Facebook, then copy the URL and paste that here.
Since we're in a temporary free-for-all, I did Whammy's broken car at random. I also did his Collie picture and I'm currently working on your bike pic, Phil.
I went in a different direction because I felt emphasizing seeing through the window made the shot, imo.

Yeah when I took this shot the intention was to draw attention to the light coming through the frosty window.
But I had to expose the shot to allow for a lot of shadow details so the window came out fairly bright. I ended up bringing down the exposure in Lightroom and then brought back in whatever shadow details I though were too dark.
Here's mine. It's close to Tangs. Just Black & White
Looking forward to seeing the Collie shot Tang. I found it interesting to process due to the darkness of the dog on a very bright background
Since I don't have a reference point of the true color the dog, I just used my best artistic judgment. So I tried to focus on the eyes without going with super-cheesy selective saturation.
Dog Collie Portrait (ss.org RAW challenge) by nrrfed, on Flickr
Here's a RAW from me with a bit more dynamic range..
Yeah the snow (it's out of focus on the ground) has a tendency to give a blueish hue under some normal white balance settings.
I think I ended up putting out all the color except for his eyes because the subtle color tint was pissing me off
Then I emphasized the eye color a little. Maybe a lot haha
I love vignetting so I also pushed that just a little bit too. Okay maybe a lot
I felt it helped to focus attention to his eyes.
Had a go at Philligan's bike photo. Nothing like the dirty streets of Ireland to make me think of home haha
Tang I tried your photo but I couldn't import it into Lightroom.
It said it's either unsupported or damaged. I updated to the latest version
I'll reupload and see if it helps! I just downloaded it and it loaded in Photoshop and Lighteoom with no problem.
That was a pretty fun one to process
I couldn't decide if B&W or color worked better. Went with color.
So this one took me some time! I wanted to get the blue just right and also bring out the orange and yellow. I boosted the clarity, drew the contrast all the way to the left and added some vignette. I need to update my program cause I want to get my hands on that collie pic!
This is such a beautiful dog! I want one!!!!!!!!! For this one, I focused on bringing out the eyes, not so much with color adjustment, but with the iris enhancer tool. I used vignetting to bring out the shadows/blacks in the pic, then adjusted the clarity, blacks/shadows and contrast to even out the tone of the body/head. I like to see most of the detail on an object which is why I don't have super dark spots unless it's in the corners of the frame. Anywho, this is probably my favorite edit yet.
Whammy, how do you feel those RAW files handled compared to your 5d2? As far as I know, I'm the only Pentax person taking part of this adventure.
I found your files pretty easy to manipulate heavily, for what it's worth!
