Quote from: AndrewKulin
This got me a thinking, I am using CS3 so I don't even think I would be able to process a 5D mkII file with ACR should I be assigned such a file.  

Andrew

I'm not certain, but I suspect the current version of Adobe's dng converter (free download) is likely to be able to handle most of the current files, such as from a 5D MKII. After converting, you should be able to process the dng raw file in ACR, even with CS3, or perhaps even with CS2 (I forget how far back the dng format goes).


I've got LR 2.5 (and 3 Beta), CS4, DxO 5, Raw Shooter premium 2006 (!), Canon's DPP, and C1 LE version 3.77 available to cover most files people might throw at me. And then there is the dng converter, if necessary.

Actually, I'd quite like a P65 file...  Never seen one before!  Seeing as most people should be able to use a DNG, could you reconsider that Christopher?

As I said, both packages are uploaded. (One containing a P65 image and one 5DMk2 image) I think the P65 image would be more interesting, because it was shot under not to ideal conditions and it certainly would be interesting to see how other people work on it. I just uploaded the 5d file as back up.

Been away in Big Bend National Park in Texas the past week.  Is there a next step here?

As far as I can tell, we're waiting for Peter Ait to upload his processed file, and then for awolfe to send us all our raw homework files.


Got some good stuff from Big Bend?

It is far from me to want to urge anyone or anything, BUT

why would we wait for anyone to upload the processed file?

I mean, the version created by the photographer of the image should not be published before others did their work. The goal should not be to make the same but somehow better (if one can), but to create own renderings, thus the best would be not to have seen how the photographer did it.

What do you think of this?

Makes sense to me, Gabor. What you are suggesting, I think, is that we should all do our best efforts on the raw files we are given, and only after we have done our best do we get to see the original photographer's version. That way we are not influenced by the original photographer's interpretation.

FYI, I'm going to out of town between Nov 26 and Dec 6, so I won't be able to do anything during that time, but will try to be reasonably prompt after I get back!

And I also agree that it's best to finish our attempts on other peoples' raw files *before* we see the original photographer's (or anyone else's) version.

Sorry about that - work change, and 2 family changes happened in short order.
Back in the saddle!

Next step is me sending out the raw file processing links to everyone.  I think we've gotten all the submissions we're going to get!

I don't know how the rest did it, but in the link I send you both processed and raw file are in one zip package, so someone would need to split them up before handing it out.

Everybody should now have their processing links for the RAW files.  Have fun!  Let's post the results back to this thread for now - and if folks want to exchange the fill size images you can upload again to your original sending links.

Ok, here are my 3...  All global adjustments ie: no masks etc.  Straightened the horizon on 1 and de-dusted another.  I'll post my take on the ones I submitted when I figure out which ones I sent in :0  BTW, to whoever submitted the sailboats - I can see the condo where I used to live!

It's interesting to see already how different interpretations can be.  

Anyway, here are my three tries:

[attachment=19127:LRraw_3b.jpg][attachment=19123:LRraw_4b.jpg][attachment=19124:
LRraw_5b.jpg]

No cropping except for a tiny bit off the right in the first one. All were initially processed in LR 2.6, then a little touch up in CS4.

Cheers,

Eric
