Temple and Post Processing

This was an exercise in post processing.  I took this picture in a temple right in the afternoon with the Fuji X100 ISO 800 and aperture priority at f8.  The first picture is the Jpeg SOOC.

The next picture is the jpeg processed in VSCO 3 and then with lightroom dodging, burning and other processing. I wanted to see what the result would be.

I then applied the same settings to the Fuji RAW file.

    • Thanks for your comment. I couldn’t really see the difference between the jpg and raw processing but I am glad you found it stronger. Perhaps next time, I should process the raw from scratch rather than copying the settings from the jpg one.

  1. I went from Jpeg to RAW to Jpeg again. I like Jpeg as I do not need much editing for now because I do not how to do. perhaps in time to come. 😀

  2. Hiya!

    I too can’t see so much (critical) difference between the two post processed shots, but I can say that I really like them. I like the colours (compared to the top one), and I like the denser, coloured smoke that appears to be almost spiralling. The more muted foreground (& top) with the more intense glow on the woman’s face are really nice. There’s a lot going on in this photo, which makes it worth spending time on as a viewer.
