New To Forum and DSLR But Not Pentax- First From Raw.
Posted By: Mythmaker, 11-16-2008, 08:01 AM

G'day All,
Just thought I'd work out how to post a photo for feedback. Have had my K20D +DA*16-50 for two weeks about and am still working out how to make the most of shooting RAW. This shot was two different jpegs from raw, one for the sky colour, using the Pentax Lab software, one for the earth colour and then layered in The Gimp.
I hope this way works, at first I tried to embed the actual image but to get it down to the required size i had to degrade it's quality to 50% which made it look horrible.

Great photo!

I don't think you can link directly to the photo, but this link should work:

Damn Brit

Really nice shot when you look at the larger one, those distant clouds come in to play.

This is so typical of what Austalia should look like.

Great job
