Chicago Pier



Chicago Pier, originally uploaded by RJIPhotography.

I decided to take a more serious look at Capture One version 4.6 and it's raw conversion. My focus is on the quality of the conversion as I can always use other software like Lightroom and Photoshop to fine tune things.

This image was not the sharpest image to begin with but I do believe that Capture One did a nice job of processing the image. I used a high contrast B&W preset that the software came with. It works well for this image since it was low in contrast owing to the overcast/dusk lighting at the time. I am liking what this software can do. Still more checking and evaluation to do.

Seeing the fun stuff coming out of your new camera certainly gave me something to think about. I decided at a minimum to get every last trick out of the camera I have before I make a decision to upgrade. I even (gasp) brought out the manual!

Next on the list - that upgrade to CS4.

Thank you Cindy. Knowing your equipment makes a difference for sure. I mostly use Lightroom and because of what it can do, my need for photoshop has gone way down.
