Thanks, Wiebe!  This is my most popular photo here on DA.  It was also the first time I developed a RAW photo, which made me an instant fan of RAW and Photoshop.

Most cameras shoot jpegs but if you can set your camera to shoot in RAW, the camera doesn't process the photo; all the data is there to be uncovered through the various filters available in Photoshop.  One has more leeway when working with a RAW file.  Once one finishes the post-processing, it is saved as a jpeg.

Hi Zsofia.  Yes, it's real, but I "punched up" the colours and contrasts somewhat in Photoshop.  It was my first RAW image, and when I began post-processing and saw the colours jump like that, I was hooked on RAW imaging forever!  I shot this photo at the Ripley's Aquarium at the foot of the CN Tower in downtown Toronto.  The last time I returned to the aquarium, however, this particular type of jellyfish was gone, sadly, as I was hoping to get an even better photo with my new camera.

Thanks so much, Cristian!  I do wish I had taken this shot with my Canon 6D and had taken a faster exposure to improve the sharpness of the image.  Live and learn!

Indeed, Will!  It was post-processing this photo that converted me once and for all to RAW imaging!  I couldn't believe how the colours popped when I started moving those RAW sliders!  I won't go back to jpegs now.

Raw, eh?  I'm a huge fan of maximum quality in artistic presentations (music, movies, pictures, etc.,) and I find myself somewhat displeased that my cameras take Jpegs.  I'll have to research raw editing, thanks for the info!

Some higher-quality cameras have the option of shooting in jpeg, or RAW--or both, even simultaneously.  Then, of course, it's a matter of finding good RAW software.

This was my first photo developed with the RAW software.  Darlene had been urging me for weeks to shoot only in RAW and give up the jpegs.  The original pic wasn't nearly so vibrant as this, but when I moved the sliders over, it exploded with colour and contrast!  That dramatic post-processing experience made a believer out of me.

Thanks for liking, everyone, but this photo has been in my gallery for a long time.  I had to re-upload it as a smaller file--that's why it's called "Polychromatic Jelly small"--in order to feature it large on my profile page.  When I tried to do the original photo large there, I was told it was too big.
