    Finally got around to doing something about this months comp... I was going to try and come up with something different, but ran out time (Leaving for an extended Xmas break to Somerset in a few days). So popped out this evening and made this photograph of my workplace.

    For some reason I can't make the exif data stick... I've tried all sorts, just isn't happening. (Zone - I'll send you the RAW file if you want)

    But for the record, this is what it is:

    Nikon D50
    20mm
    ExposureTime : 25.00Sec
    FNumber : F16.0
    ExposureProgram : Aperture Priority
    DateTimeOriginal : 2006:12:19 17:01:35
    ISO: 200

    Converted from RAW - Small tonal/colour adjustments, removed slight flare, corrected perspective.

    Excellent, I also like the car headlights, not just for the streaming but also for the extra lighting it provides on the foreground landscape.

    "popped out this evening" lol.:rotfl:

    Really! you just have to put a little more effort into this!:D

    Thanks for the comments.

    The foreground was almost black without the headlights - thought about using flash, but the 20mm 1.8 is a monster, and gets in the way of the little on board speedlight. With staff constantly leaving at this sort of time, it was the natural way to do it ;)

    I'm sure i'll have to field lots of questions about what I was doing when I go into work tomorrow, at least 20 cars must have passed me in the few minutes I was there.

    How are you saving it after converting to jpeg?

    Just using 'Save As' which should work. I have also tried 'Save for Web'

    I have also tried converting to TIFF in Rawshooter, then opening in Photoshop, and re saving in both ways... just doesn't want to work.

    The only way I can get it to stick is by converting to TIFF in Rawshooter, and leaving it at its full resolution.

    It's probably because i'm using Photoshop 6 (I know) which might not support the header file.
