I thought I’d try another RAW edit from Reddit/EditmyRAW. This time it’s a shot of a pair of shoes on the beach. Actually, it’s not a bad image at all. I like the arrangement, so I edited lightly.
The Original Image
The Beach Shoes Image was taken by a Redditor called NajuSan. Shot on Canon EOS10 with a Tamron 18-200mm F3~5.6 Diii VC B018 Lens. Settings are: f22 @ 1/125 at 18mm on ISO200. Uncropped the raw file came in under 10MB! So there’s plenty of data to play with, and tighter cropping should still result in a fairly decent image.
I’ve edited the image gently, straightened the horizon. The biggest change is probably the addition of a warm filter, since I like later afternoon warm light. The image was actually shot in the morning.
The Edited Image
So I’ve had a little fun playing with those to see what happens: What is ‘recovery’? I have to go research that! Well, left image is recovered 100, right is unrecovered with slightly pushed blacks to restore the blacks of the original image.
