    experimenting with the 70-200VR lens on an overcast day...

    1. 1/640, f5.0, 190mm

    094-190-50-640-200.jpg

    2. 1/1250, f2.8, 200mm

    083-200-28-1250-200.jpg

    3. 1/800, f4.0, 200mm

    087-200-40-800-200.jpg

    manual program mode, iso200, autoWB was used on all these.
    in the last few months, i switched from jpg to raw and am still learning how to postprocess.
    i am evaluating both adobe lightroom and silkypix (can't afford cs3 or whatever's the latest and greatest).
    i used silkpix on these. please tell me what you think...

    thanks.
     
  2. They Look Good. Giraffes are amazing animals I think.

    I have never heard of Silkpix. I however use Adobe Photoshop Lightroom for my RAW processing. I have tried both Lightroom and Apple's Aperture. In my opinion, Lightroom is much more user friendly and very easy to understand and get the hang of. And yet, I bet that there are people on this forum who would say exactly the opposite. Lol. Mainly, Its just user preference. So if you like SilkPix, Go for it. I don't see any reason not to judging by the photos you showed here.

    Thanks for sharing. :smile:

    thanks scott. :smile:

    i like LR's file management and keyword capabilities but i may like silkpix's processing better. i need to choose as the trial periods will expire soon!

    thanks again for your comments.
