I've spent some time editing some of the photos from our trip down south and a there's a couple that turned out pretty well!
In my excitement with the new camera, I forgot to check the image settings and assumed I was shooting in RAW because who on earth doesn't, duh. Turns out I was shooting in JPEG :(
Oh well, lesson learnt.
The photos aren't bad straight out of the camera as JPEG's, I just like to have a bit more flexibility when editing, which RAW provides. Shooting in RAW has saved my ass so many times, heh.
