It's been a while since I wrote my last post here, but I've been working on my Photoshop skills, and have some results. I am using Photoshop CS2 at the moment, and it seems to do everything I need. I'm still getting a hang of it so bear with. All of these photos have been taken with the trusty D80, but have been shot in RAW.
There are many advantages to RAW, for one, no detail is lost in compression, which is inevitable when using JPEG, and, as it is the raw image captured by the sensor of the camera, it is possible to recover some detail from the photo that may have previously been lost, for example, by adjusting the 'sensitivity' of the CCD. Anyway, here are the best of my first attempts at Photoshop.

This photo remained unedited, as the camera was set to JPEG when I took the shot, however I thought it looked quite good so here it is nonetheless...
