  1. I think I know what you mean….The flower one is ok for a jpg out of cam, but the rest are missing a bit of “punch”, right? I really don’t know the jpg engine of the Sony, I would try to increase the jpg settings contrast and saturation if the standard setting produces not enough “punch”. My Olympus cams have jpg modes like “Vivid” that do exactly that, even though I don’t use them. I shoot almost exclusively in RAW. RAW does not apply any pre-sharpening, contrast or saturation to the file, I need to do this myself in post processing. It is like working with analog film in the old days. So my RAW files always look like this out of cam, and I need to “develop” them to create the look I’m after. It is additional work, yes, but the work in the digital darkroom is as fun as shooting. And RAW files contain so much more information and tonal range than jpgs.


    1. Thank you for taking the time to go through my pictures and get back to me. I will check my camera for jpg settings . Regarding taking pictures in RAW and doing processing can I use Adobe photoshop elements or should I have Digital Darkroom only.

      1. Don’t get confused – Digital Darkroom is not an application, but rather my referral to working with an application like Photoshop Elements or Adobe Lightroom (which I use). Yes, Elements should be able to handle RAW via Adobe Camera Raw. To try things out you can always photograph RAW and jpg together (almost all cameras allow that), so you have two files to work with for each image and can see with which you achieve better results in post processing.
