Of course; they're shot in RAW, so obviously needed to be cropped/edited in post-production. But not using any "fake filters" or any of that nonsense.

Seems to be what makes a huge difference. Just made up my mind that I will shoot my next trip starting later this week in RAW. Hope I don't regret all the extra work I am creating for myself

I'd recommend it. But, you're concern is well-founded. As long as TR-writing/posting/editing is now, shooting in RAW and editing probably doubles it.

We took the second loop at a bit faster pace stopping off in town to pick up some drinks. Seeing as the two cokes wed had the previous evening had rung up at $10, which unless the coke is white, powdery and can be snorted, should never cost that much, we bought a six-pack of soda for about $5, threw it in our backpack and jumped back on our bike to head back to the hotel.

alol

wonderful tr and such beautiful pictures!
My greatest achievement? I am fluent in FRIENDS quotes

Good idea, but for the first time get an insurance policy: shoot RAW+JPEG. You'll have the best of both worlds, should you become overwhelmed.

I know I'm a little late to the party with reading this TR, but WOW! Just amazing!

Also, due to the fact that American Express is a DansDeals.com advertiser, I'd be remiss if I did not point out that both (i) my conversations via WhatsApp to on DL One with Yehoshua regarding placing the BHT order, (ii) the ability to order the Uber from 27,000 feet were only made possible due to the ten GoGo passes included with the American Express Business Platinum Card.

--AJK, a small business owner

(or something like that! :P)
I'm glad to have been of service!

I choose my friends and business partners basically along these lines, so feel free to introduce us :P

I have a fundamental distrust for people who dislike Sriracha...
Good thing I like sriracha then.

Actually it was in the Philippines although I did get some third world flashbacks on my trip to Brooklyn last month and when I see all the shopping carts on the residential streets of Pico/Robertson in LA  ;D ;D :P :P
Hey, those shopping carts are a far ways from the streets of Brooklyn.

So you and MCs husband and AJK can make a sriracha club
lol  :D

No, Bob Sacamano was with them.

As far as the TR:
Uch. I hate you.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.
