good stuff; are these from raw or jpg mainly?

Hey Dennis, thanks for the compliment. They are all shot from JPG with Neutral settings on the camera. I just don’t have the time or space to work on 5700 RAW photos when I get back from a trip. It’s already taking me a week’s processing for every day that we travelled. 🙂

Holy! that’s a lot of processing lol…have a blast…btw I’ve got a micro 43 camera….check out the link of a guy on a forum who also went to Galapagos… pretty good stuff too on a system half the weight..and the zoom is stunning, the panasonic 100-300mm gets you 200-600mm on the smaller sensor…cheers

The processing is NOT the fun part 😦

I’ve considered looking at some of the micro 4/3 but not comfy with so many pixels on such a small sensor. Heck, I’d would have prefered it if Canon had stayed with the same pixel density as the 50D but added the cool features of the 7D
