Pokémon Pose

Two girls with their mother. The girls were die-hard Pokémon fans (especially the one on the left), and when they realized they could see their pokémons on the camera LCD, they really started to pose with those plastic brainwashers and other toys. This was my favourite shot - it has a great pose, great exposure and they look relaxed and happy, and eyes are straight to the camera. Technically this photo is a combination of weak flash (G1 in Tv mode, flash bounced in ETTL mode) and a chandelier giving light on their top, and some luck of course, too. I converted the original RAW to TIFF using the white balance picker tool, and came up with for the warm look you see. That makes the RAW format so good - you can really be in control of the colors later. Click or here for original size JPEG. It's not as smooth as TIFF but you'll see the real size of the image and get the idea how good G1 is if you have something nice to capture.
