    Not many balloons around, for some odd reasons, but some good photo opportunities nonetheless:

    Thanks for the comments

    In Nikon Capture (all images were RAW) - D-Lighting applied, inc saturation of +5 and then sharpening of 60% applied to all as a batch (and resized down to 800x532 at the same time). That's what I do to all of my images (with my primes typically having sharpening of 40% instead). Took about 15 minutes to do over 100 images in all.

    Radiohead - do you do all this in Photoshop ?? Can certain elements only be applies to the RAW files. I've got a Fuji 6800Z which doesn't take pictures anywhere near as good as those above (And I'm not taking composition good - just quality of the image) must have a serious thought about going D-SLR.

    I use Nikon Capture, but the principles are much the same in Photoshop.

    When you're making a post. Click the little square icon with the mountains in it, then simply paste the url to your photo in the pop up box;)
