Re: Help

The standard one is dark and a bit flat. The raw-convert is Ok for brightness, but still is a bit flat. The rawlevels looked the best to me - more contrast.

See what the others think.

Re: Help

I would say somwhere between the 2 Raw ones ... levels version has a bit to much contrast at top of head. Standard is awful

Possibly a stupid question but are you saving these with sRGB profile, as quite often using just RGB makes shots look dull on the web ?

Re: Help

Can you see the different shades from white to black clearly on your monitor with this ?

Re: Help

As Dave said Rawlevels is just a bit blown on curtains above head, rawconvert just need a bit pop OR definitely somewhere between those two.....for me anyway.

Re: Help

Raw Convert + a bit of sharpening for me. I gather the curtains were pulled to reduce the sunlight and hence gives more diffused light.Regards Brian

Re: Help

Alan, your site is good but as a customer I would prefer to see the price up front rather than click on Buy Now.

Re: Help

Another vote for somewhere between the two RAW shots. RAWlevels looks just a tad oversaturated and too contrasty to me.
