RAW vs jpg (#6 or 7 or something)

I have mentioned several times before that there are situations where images shot as jpgs are “throw aways” that had they been shot in RAW format could be salvaged.

Today’s comparison is one such example. With a rainbow outside a dimly-lit gym, I had the choice of shooting the rainbow and getting a nearly black gym (above) or shooting the action on the court and getting a white sky (not shown). By shooting in RAW I was able to process the above image to come up with what you see below.

By the way, Ashland won last night, advanced to the Sweet 16 in state, and will be playing in St. Helens on Saturday. The winner moves on to the Elite 8 round.

Game time is 6:30. If Ashland wins they will hit the road on Saturday for a game against a top eight team to see who gets to go on to the State Championship in Hillsboro the following weekend.

Back to #5

As I predicted on Saturday, the Raiders are back to #5 in the national rankings. If they can crack the top four by the end of the regular season they can have home games for the first round and quarterfinals of the NAIA playoffs. #3 Grand View may lose this week in a tough road match up. #4 Faulkner has a difficult road game the following week. Things look good if the Raiders continue to win.

This Saturday’s game is in Ashland against #21 Rocky Mountain.

When I previously used a D7000 and Tokina 11-16mm lens I enjoyed experimenting with sun stars. I haven’t found a lens that did them very good on full frame, though, until I tried yesterday with my Nikkor 20mm f/1.8g. Bingo!
