I shot these lilacs Wednesday afternoon on the banks of the Catawba River with my 20D, 50mm 1.8, at f8/125sec. This is the first time I've shot in RAW format. C & C needed. Thanks.

Moderator, could you please delete this panel? Thanks.

These flowers are nice... I'd work them up in post processing more, for color intensity, contrasts for "pop"... maybe try the highlights/shadows, and black and white sliders too...and a dose of sharpening, all might make a noticeable difference... Have fun.

I didn't know exactly what they were...a fisherman I met near them said he thought they were lilacs (I guess because they had a very sweet fragrance). Sounded good at the time, lol. Thanks for identifying them for me.

Yeah, I'm new to all of this post processing stuff. I think I am going to download a trial version of Lightroom to work with. Thanks for the advice...I'll try it a few different ways.
