    the lens flare kills it but I think the subject has potential.

    I have no idea. I think I forgot to check the ISO until after I left the place I was shooting at.

    I'm an idiot.

    It would've been tons better at 100. No noise...

    Regardless, The reason I posted it is because I don't even really like it. I was gonna go back and shoot it right, but got in a time crunch for class, so I handed it in like that.

    Everyone loved it.

    :ugh2:

    I think I could have moved the boat out of center, toned down the street lights a little, and shot at the right ISO, and it would've been good.

    Just wanted to make sure you guys agreed with me, that it's decent, but nothing worth getting nominated for best of quarter...

    I wish they would've at least picked a shot I liked....

    Why would you shoot it in RAW if you weren't allowed to PP? Isn't that the purpose of RAW? Colors would be a lot better shot in JPEG.

    what the hell? :squint:

    None of that's true. Not even a little.

    The jpg your camera spits out is nothing more than a compressed, 'in camera' adjusted version of your RAW data.

    RAW is the actual data from the sensor of your camera. It captures more detail and is a loss-less file format.

    There's NO reason to shoot in jpg if you have the space and hardware/software to support it.

    I'll never shoot in jpg.

    But for this class assignment, the instructor was interested in seeing all detail and exif data from our shots. Which is why we were required to shoot in raw.

    Stay in camera school.

    I agree that JPG would have been a better choice if you wernt going to PP, the jpg is also tagged with EXIF.

    ok, why?

    considering that I have all of the cameras internal effects turned off.

    I can't seem to find one redeeming factor to lean towards shooting in jpg. If you're going to say because the jpg tweaks the image colors, and because it's a smaller size, thats all BS.

    Regardless, for this assignment we weren't allowed.

    yes its true, regardless of shuttin off all "extras" of jpg. Camera still does processing. It probably would have looked better. Camera Co have PP in mind when you shoot Raw. So that you can PP.

    For this assigment you weren't allowed to shoot in jpg? What about people whose cameras can't shoot in jpg? All of those point and shoots that shoot jpeg take exif data as well. Actually, pretty much every camera records exif data.

    Before you bitch me out for telling you to use jpg and not raw, why not read a little more instead of thinking you fucking now everything? Ignorance? You wanted feedback, so I gave you fucking feedback.

    That picture is nothing to rave over. I would hate to see the other crap that got turned in if yours got nominated for best. :rofl:
