Back to the New Zealand images for a change… I caught the rainbow outside Alpine Cottage, our 5-star motel at Lake Tekapo, a couple of minutes after dad took his shots. The skies were brightening rapidly and we wished we could have gotten up even earlier. Nevertheless, the early morning outing was a fruitful one and we managed to return of a haul of good pictures
I am in a midst of a RAW workflow dilemma: while Adobe Lightroom offers more control with a slick, easy-to-use interface as well as a smoother workflow compared to the software supplied with my 40D (Canon Digital Photo Professional), I am somewhat drawn to the excellent colour rendition DPP generates. I prefer the tones and brighter colours that Canon DPP seem to be able to pull out readily compared to Lightroom. This is despite loading Lightroom with several calibration presets for the 40D which I have found on the web. So frustrated with Lightroom’s colour rendering that I have decided to reprocess several of the keepers from my NZ trip completely with Canon DPP. I hope to post up the results for a comparison soon… Meanwhile here’s the same shot as above, but processed with Lightroom for a comparison.
