2011, Day 221 - Harvest

RAW saves the day!  I always shoot in RAW as a kind of insurance, it gives me more control over the image and allows me to save improper exposures.  This is a perfect example, the EXIF information clearly shows that I had the camera set to shoot in a much different environment and as a result this image came out too bright, I maxed out the shutter speed.  However, with a little work in Photoshop I have an image I really like with great color and contrast.  This is my favorite photograph of work in the rice fields from this trip to Asia so it makes me happy I've made the commitment in time and energy to shoot RAW.
