A couple of interesting links from the Luminous Lanscape

Michael Reichmann (a guru in American Landscape Photography – Happy Thanksgiving to you, btw) has a couple of interesting comments, following a photographic trip to Madagascar.

The first one is about JPEG vs RAW, where he makes the points (with a couple of illustrative examples ) that RAW allows for much better post-processing that JPEG. Indeed, the text is entitled JPEG Follies. That says it all. My only comment at that stage is: do I ever need to tweak an image so much? It looks like I am not the only one with that comment (see the update). I must be one of these biased people🙂

In the same vein, he is giving an example of extreme cropping (to say the least) and a resulting image which I like an awful lot (scroll down that page to the “Mango Laneway” picture, not to say that the rest is uninteresting…). Well, except that you need a full frame 21 mega pixels Canon 1DSMarkIII to be able to do something with the shot.

Maybe I should start a donation page on Linux – Photography blog?

On reflection it probably is more about the photographer than about the camera🙂

Enjoy!

    FYI Michael Reichmann is Canadian. We celebrated Thanksgiving back in October.
    But you are right about his photography…
