Thanks John! Appreciate your words. I should have slowed down and been more clear. When I shot photos, I have a RAW and JPEG. The RAW I convert to a TIFF file. However, when I import these to my computer, the RAW often (not always) looks considerably lighter than the JPEG. So, the RAW needed some darkening, the JPEG needed lightening. With other PP changes, I used SmartCurv, unsharpen mask, etc. Thus, looking at SET ONE, I was wondering which is better, the RAW-->TIFF, or the JPEG.

In my SECOND SET, if my memor serves me correctly, I did same thing, RAW converted to TIFF, the second photo a JPEG. H O W E V E R , it is my very, very humble opinion that my K7, shooting at ISO 3200 did a fantastic job... take a look at the EXIF. My hope was to show that the Pentax K7 does a great job even at 3200, and NOTE that in the above, you have all sort of green (grass, birch and pine trees, etc, etc.) To me, it was really cool to see the K7 in action.

Thanks John

The ISO 3200 look quite good! I almost never use it (don't have a need to for the most part), but perhaps I should try it more. Do you have the K7 set to the default bright setting? I use natural setting instead of bright - a little less saturation, not as much difference between raw and jpg. But the bright setting looks better in some situations, where you want the extra saturation.

My daily commute is more than 45 minutes, too. But then, I live in the mountains and it's a welcome relief after all the concrete the city has.

Thanks Harriet! I use so many settings, normally Landscape... but I often vary.

All the best.

Many thanks! Glad you liked my wife's photo, too. By the way, the first day at the cottage, the lake was so calm, not a ripple in sight... was as smooth as glass.

All the best.
