I want to use this particular photo as an example, to illustrate why people like me  prefer to only work with RAW files. Please compare with this photo. I took about 4 of these, but this first one did not have a good exposure, it came out very dark and barely visible. I always shoot both RAW+JPEG, cause it's nice having those backups just in case. Long story short, You will quickly noticed how I was able to adjust the brightness coming from the window, the glass is now visible. I also give it a Sepia tint, and made several other adjustments. I would have never been able to make it look this natural, or make the colors blend the way they do, if I started from a jpeg file, especially a small jpeg file.

Long story short, You will quickly noticed how I was able to adjust the brightness coming from the window, the glass design is now more defined, and visible. Notice the flooring is more visible as well. I also give it a Sepia tint, and made several other adjustments. Normally, I would have never been able to make the kind of adjustments I did, and still keep the photo looking this natural; or make the colors blend the way they do, if I started from a jpeg file, especially a small jpeg file. I’m not going to lie, this sh** can be a lot of work depending on what your doing, but its totally worth it. So, the next time someone says, your less than smart for working with RAW, just simply walk away. ‘Cause that should give you an immediate clue, they have no idea what their talking about. Remember, investigate for yourself (hands-on), and always speak from the “I”. Oh, BTW: I used mostly light room and Paintshop.

I wish I was able to capture both of them. I knew If I didn't snap I would miss an opportunity. These guys appeared to be the best of friends, because their walking rhythm was so on point; it was almost identical, like synchronized swimming.. LOL
