    Fantastic colors and contrast here...always a treat to see your color work! I keep going back to #4, really a stand out shot for me.

    How do you get the colors to be like that?
    Is it the camera?

    I'd say it's a combination of everything - the light, perhaps the lens/body, and post processing.
    While editing the RAW file in Photoshop, I desaturate the image to my taste and fiddle with Brightness/Contrast (B/C). After saving it as a Tiff file, I use the Shadows/Highlights (usually pulls the Shadows slider all the way to the left, and move up the Highlights slider to my taste). Then I use the B/C to fine tune the contrast to my taste. Finally, after saving it to Jpeg, I wrap up with the KPD Magic Sharpen tool from Kubota for the final pop.

    Btw, thanks for the comments - Alison, Arch! :)

    I don't know him. It was just a quickly timed catch. :)

    The original is a RAW file. Here is the Jpeg 9 600x600 72dpi, untouched.

    Closest I can get :| .

    Yours is a little more brighter in areas( Person's face on that white wall ). Can't seem to get that without making everything else brighter.
