That Island sure has some nice sized Whitetails on it. Nice pose on the doe.

I don't think your posts are stopping anyone else:-) By chance are you using increased in-camerasaturation? What have you decided about using any ofthe in-cameraprocessing?

I think I have it set up a bit in one of my standard shooting modes...too saturated? I confess I like punchy pictures...Donna

I don't think it's really oversaturated, I just found that when I tried the in-camera settings it had a different tone if left that way.It justlooked familiar is why I asked.Most of like the "punch" in a photo, and adjusting contrast helps quite a bit for me. It's an individual taste and whatever works.

Are you shooting in RAW/using DPP or PS? I think you are coming along pretty well and soon you can give me tips.:-)

I haven't started shooting RAW yet...I used Photoshop elements 4.0, so do you leave your camera setting on standard and then work the color and contrast in photoshop...donna

If you are pretty good with elements or even use DPP you really should shoot RAW. There is a lot of detail in the RAW image you can work with. Only downside is filling up a CF card a lot faster. I usually have two 2Gig CF and a 1Gig if i'm going to be out for a day.

I have all settings in camera set to -0- except for sharpness (which may not be good if usingNR on the image) which I set at +2. Just to help me judge an image. I do look at some of them and delete right then if needed, otherwise Iprobably couldn't carry enough memory.:-)

Everything is done in PP as I did not care at all for the results ofin camera processing.

If you do not have another program to convert RAW images, I think DPP does a pretty fair job and pretty easy. Give it a try!

what is DDP? Can I use canon software that came bundled with my camera to handle raw images. I did a download for 4.0 for raw. I had a bad experience with olympus master and raw when I was using the e-500 so I quit using it. I must give it a try and see how my software works....donna
