How much processing have you done on these? I found that doing some stretching has really brought the bang out of some of the otherwise low contrast and slightly underexposed images. It looks like you've perhaps done a bit of stretching as well.

Processing? None! This is how they shots came out of the camera!!


Seriously, I am doing the same digital darkroom processing I do on almost all of my images.

First, I set my white and black points to do the color correction and to maximize the dynamic range.

Second, I set the color saturation. This one image had good color, so I set this so it is a bit more saturated than usual.

Third, I remove any dust spots.

Fourth, some dodging and burning where appropriate.

Last comes resizing, sharpening, lowering the bit depth to 8 bits from the RAW 12 bits and then compressing to the resulting jpegs that get posted.

Pretty much what I did in the darkroom when I shot film and nothing extreme. Digital sure does make it go much quicker though, and undoing incorrect adjustments are a breeze.

It takes about 10 minutes per image.
