(Processed from RAW with RawTherapee 3.0.0, Finepix F550EXR, f5.9,1/4secs, WB Cloudy)
Taken on the High Street in the Harrow-on-the-Hill (London, UK) village a few days before Christmas 2011. Normally I don’t process my images, but I looked at the RAW file for this one to learn a few things – the light was fading fast, but the RAW file had more of the evening’s purple light captured than the JPEG, so that’s why I decided to use the RAW this time.
Question for the viewer: the JPEG taken at the same time is 4.2Mb, the file obtained by processing a 24Mb RAW file ended up at 1.6Mb… why?! Answers much appreciated!
