FOWChallenge-Raw

~~~~~

~~~~~

I have opted to use RAW in the photographic sense today.

I also endeavoured to find a 25 words or less definition.

However, it’s late and all explanations were

too wordy for this time of night.

This image was shot as a JPG and is therefore

partially compressed in camera.

The  sky lacks detail and the trees are darker.

Same shot only shot as RAW

Overall colours lacking contrast, more tail in trees and sky.

I’m not an expert editor, however,

camera club colleagues, and research

state that a RAW image in not compressed.

All detail remains as shot and RAW images

can be manipulated more in editing software

such as Photoshop  and Light Room.

from Queenscliff to Sorrento

for lunch.

and black lighthouses.

Seems I missed this one last week.

Moon set from our back door.

One of my Best and favourite moon shots.

Testing my (then) new 50-500 mm Sigma lens.

This was a handheld shot with the assistance

of a veranda post for some stability.

Blues and yellows from all over.

This was new to me.

I was unaware we had coast guard boats, as such,

let alone yellow ones.

 

Air Arctic at Coldfoot airport.

A local tourist train.

Fairbanks airport I think.

My favourite form this set.

Loved the song or The Beatles.

Not so  sure now though.

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Liquid

Earlier this year MGW and I decided to…  

celebrate our wedding anniversary with

a First Class Dining Experience on The Q Train,

a restored Queenslander Train

which runs on a short section of disused track

between Drysdale and Queenscliff.

  

Part of the First Class experience was a private cabin…

a six course meal and…

matching wine with each course.

 

As wine does not appeal to either of us we asked for

were supplied with a non-alcoholic version of each drink,

some of which I have included in today’s post.

We hope to repeat the journey sometime in the future

and while we have daylight saving time so

we can enjoy the scenery as we dine.
