Yep, as always. Since I discovered it's possibilities, I never shoot jpeg. I don't batch convert, I select a few and delete the rest.

myself.

i asked because this is one of my favorite TYPE of image. i like hi contrast, hi saturation images. foreground to background also. what i'd do to this when developing in raw is play the exp and the briteness controls against the shadow detail. in other what i'd do is try to turn the background to an almost solid black without losing the hi-lite details. don't know how it would do due to the black joints on the spider. the shadow feature in raw developers is one of my favorite tools.. it's the style my avatar is. kind of a Renaissance feel. only works on certain type captures.

Ira, seems we have the same species on both sides of the ditch, Araneus diadematus according to my book. Thanks for joining in.
