Before and after, using DPP.

I massaged about all settings, I clearly didn't set it up correctly in the camera.
- white balance reset
- contrast taken down
- saturation up a bit
- exposure down about 2/3
- sharpening up
- NR with lum slider taken up a bit
- Highlights taken down
- Trimmed in DPP

A Point about Cropping this lightroom image for those interested

The CROPPING in lightroom above was done with an image from my 50megapixel FF 5DSR Camera . The camera RAW file is so large that heavy cropping like this( probably 75%-80of image cropped out ) still renders a very usable file size with no loss of IQ . This image was shot using a ef 100-400mm lens @400mm and as one can see the wren was still that far away it could onlyfill up a small portion of the frame. On a normal FF 24meg camera with similar 100-400mm lens I would have been unable to crop in this far and have a useable image left . Infact ...to get a useable image with the Wren in close and filling the frame ( after cropping) from the same distance I was shooting from would have required a lens length of either 600 or 800mm if I was using a 22-25 MP FF camera like my 5d2 .......So basically this 50 meg sensor gives me the ability to shoot with 100- 400mm lens and still end up with an image with similar resolution and low noise /good sharpness/reach as if I shot the same image with smaller MP FF Camera with a 600-800mm lens attached

I've never concerned my self with 'cropability' of cameras and I shoot with a 1D3 without issue, but after seeing this I have started to wonder how many shots I have missed due to not having that amount of crop available.

okey dokey guys heres some screen shots with the adjustments I made, along with what you see in the basic panel I used the lens correction tool, dehaze about +15, and of course noise reduction (+40) and sharpening (+70), also did some brush work.

Interesting, and shows the power of the high res sensor. I guess the downsides would be the reduced frames per second and the massive files that the camera produces that need to be stored (and backed up).

Or can you shoot the camera in crop mode to reduce file size?

Playing with an A7RII. Still haven't decided if I'm going to get one or not. . . . Nothing crazy from an editing standpoint (aside from cropping half the image away), just trying to see if I can adjust to the ergonomics of this thing.

As with most of my edits, it's mostly brush work, but here are the basics:

Here is an example I shot yesterday. This illustrates the power of RAW images and why I always shoot in RAW. I completely screwed up and salvaged an image that has gotten more compliments than pretty much anything I've done lately. How cool!!

I was at the wetlands yesterday in a rare window of free time and sunshine. Lately it's been dark and storming endlessly and I have been incredibly busy with work (I run a medical practice). So I was shooting some turtles in bright light when I saw a heron in the marsh in the shadows. I took a few images and then remembered I was on manual and had not adjusted for the way lower light of the heron. Original was really dark. But RAW and Lightroom to the rescue.

Original image converted and downsized from RAW. This is a Tamron 150-600.

Original histogram. Would be lost otherwise.

OK Lightroom adjustments in next post.
