I was asked to post a before and after shot of one of my images. The before shot is what came off the camera, more or less. The image was captured in RAW, opened in Camera RAW with as neutral a setting as I could find and before I applied any post processing. I brought the image into Photoshop, converted the color profile for web display and converted to JPEG to present in this post.
The second image is how things turned out after processing in Camera RAW and Photoshop. Levels, curves, saturation, cropping, color profile conversion for the web, sharpening and conversion to JPEG. Hopefully you can see the difference between the two images.
