This is the Before/After of my most recent shot "bygone days and what has changed". I am loving RAW format in moments like these!
Wow. That is some really great editing. How come you can't do this if you're not shooting RAW?
The image was very dark. If I would have only had a jpg of it I could have never brightened it as much as I did without getting some really ugly artefacts. So this is why RAW is the best way to shoot! =)
