I shoot raw images which means that I prefer to process my images rather than allow my excellent camera to do it when I push the shutter. So what that means to me is that I can return to this image that I took 10 years ago this coming October in Minnesota along the shore of Lake Superior. I have more skill to process my image and better tools so I can use the raw image I captured and process it so that it depicts the original scene as I remember it.
The photo below is the raw image without any processing. I used to be disappointed when I saw this on the computer screen, not realizing that it had all the data contained within so that I could eventually bring forth the scene when I first saw it.
