    Well after so long, I guess I had to teach myself... I guess I came to the realiztion that you can only do so much in camera. I have done PP on jpg's before, so didn't see what the big deal was.... I admit, I was wrong. I'm quite impressed as to how much more control you have processing RAW images as you do already compressed images.

    As a first try, I'm fairly happy with what I've got, but I'd like to hear some feedback.... I didn't spend any time worrying about composition or subject material, I just went out in the back yard and took a few snap shots. If you could, just focus on the processing. The first image is out of camera, the second image is the processed RAW image.

    Llooks like you are over saturating them. Back off just a bit.

    Second one is my favorite, but I think you've up the highlights a bit to much. The center of the flower went from good to blown out.

    I agree that you're blowing out the highlights and losing nice detail in all of these. Alos, you've got noise in #3 raw that isn't evident in #3 jpeg. You've also lost a lot of contrast in image #2 - notice the much lower detail in the flower petals. Did you get it backwards - is the first image in each pair the raw?
