RAW processing

So just how much processing can you apply to a RAW file, apparently quite a lot.   I took this shot and thought I liked the bluishness of the white balance but once I got it into the computer it was a different story and I wanted something different with more punch.  I really don’t think I could have successfully manipulated this image so much had it been a JPEG out of the camera.

    Can’t you export the first RAW to JPG and try to create the second image? You know, for sake of argument.

    No way you would have gotten both the white and the yellow this good if it had been a jpeg. Nice photo too 🙂

    Did you process these in-camera??? would have been nice to see the jpeg, in-camera and the “through Computer”…

    No the processing was in Lightroom, however the in camera RAW processing after the fact with Pentax cameras is very good but the interface is not as convenient. I was commenting on if I had shot originally in jpeg only.
