Adobe camera Raw, it is the first stage when you double click a raw image that wants to open in Photoshop, (assuming you have PS as your default RAW editing programme)

Mmmmm when i put my CF card into the reader (cuz EU crashes when i connect to the camera) LR4 auto pops up a import window when LR4 is running. i could try and open it in ACR first.... let me give that a try and see what happens.

ACR is part of CS5 or what ever CS you are using. LR seems your Defualt, though I thought ACR was part of Lightroom now?

I did find a preset in LR4 called cool tone... and it seems to help get me pointed in the right direction at least wouldn't you say??? Im going to watch and learn more about LR4... but in the mean time.

Original, straight off the camera

Can you guys give me some help here? When i take night photos the street light really make the images yellow.... i tired turning down the saturation on the yellows but then it makes it look like an old time photo.... if I adjust the wb, then the whites turn blue. Is there a way to level out the yellow and still maintain the white/blues? Or do I just have to strobes/flashes? Im using LR4... and 50 1.2L is not my ideal vehicle lens... i just happen to have it tonight... I was testing the 50 in my bar to see how it worked under those lights. Thanks!!!

QUOTED IMAGE

The problem is the temperature of the street lights is different than those of the truck headlights. What you need to do is the following:

1. Shoot raw
2. Adjust the white balance in Lightroom (top slider) for the larger scene (street lights correct with really blue headlights)
3. If you are using Lightroom 4, take an adjustment brush and paint over the headlights. Use the wb/color temp brush to correct the headlights and remove the overly blue cast.

That is the only way to do it in Lightroom. Anything more advanced will require photoshop.

As freewheeling as I can be with money, I still like to think I get good value out of a purchase. I guess I'm still debating the value of purchasing the X. I'm stuck on things that are hard to quanify, but beg for quantification. Do I see roughly $3K more performance than a MKIV? Very questionable. I understand that people in this thread won't badmouth their new purchase, if for no other reason than they don't want to admit their purchase was not all they dreamed it would be. And that's totally understandable, I would do the same thing. I guess I just don't see anything yet that illustrates $3K worth of value over a MKIV.

The 1D4 is a cracking camera, and is actually superior to the 1DX in some ways (the autofocus point coverage in the frame is greater, and you can focus with an f/8 combination on the camera).

Seems to me that the 1DX's primary claim to fame is going to be its high ISO performance. I suppose its autofocus may be better than that of the 1D4, but I would expect that to pale in comparison to its high ISO performance advantage.

The way I see it is this: modern cameras are so amazingly good that even the lower end ones (e.g., the 7D) are supremely competent, and will get you the shot nearly every time. And while there may be some image quality difference, it's not really until you start to push the size boundaries or ISO boundaries that you really start to see that.

And that means that if you normally operate within the limits of a given camera (and aren't interested in operating beyond them), anything more is beyond the point of diminishing returns.


This is a very good time in history to be a photographer, at least as regards what can be done with even meager equipment.

I'd better make sure my 14 (nearly 15) year old son doesn't see that photo Jef or he'll be hunting you down.

Beautiful girls and beautiful image.
