    I like it. :yesway:

    I liked the Canon raws, I just think I like the Fujis more. I do like the Fujis a little more right off the bat, because I find they don't need as much work. I need to get out and shoot more, I've only taken a couple hundred shots or so. It's funny - between shooting the 70D for ten weddings or so, and shooting Nikon for one, and shooting this Fuji now, the camera definitely doesn't make the photographer. But there are a tonne of subtle little differences between cameras that can totally change the experience.

    Thought I'd give this a go on my lunch break. I went for a softer look.

    I didn't spend too long on these, but here's my take. The little boxes are from needing to convert to DNG before I could open the files.

    Bumping this up with this shot; I'll post how I edited this image once someone gives it a go. It shouldn't need too much skin work so it's a little more Lightroom-friendly :lol:.

    Really nice composition on this photo. I really like it.

    Also the Nikon file was so much easier to edit than my Canon files :lol:

    It worked quite fine, my take.

    Alright! First off, thank you guys for all of the tutelage and inspiration. Getting on here was no doubt one reason my photos got so much better in a short period of time (although they could still use work of course).

    All shooting was done with the D7100 and 85mm f1.8 AF nikkor lens and I'd like to see what you guys could do with the RAW files. I've made my own versions already but I'm interested to see the difference with someone who has been doing it a while!

    Honestly, none of those images really speak to me to spend more than about 10 minutes working on them (they all look like snapshots to me). Here's a quick edit I did for the first shot.
