An under-exposed and dark photo of five bartenders smiling in a group behind a bar.
If I was using the JPEG image format to save the files, the image would have looked crummy if I tried to lighten it to a decent level. But, I was using RAW which allows much more manipulation while maintaining quality.
I figured I'd see how far I could push it. I'm pleased with the result:
Five bartenders smiling in a group behind a bar with an adjusted exposure lightening the photo to make it more visible
This is the first time I've pushed an image like this. I'm impressed.
Bonus points for salvaging an image that I can drop off for the crew.
