In a post written on the 7th of December, I wrote about how I had spent some time out in the mud after a rain storm to get some macro shots of raindrops. I showed the original photograph:
I shot this photograph in Camera RAW, which allows me a lot more room to sharpen and process the image. If you aren't sure what Camera Raw is, here is a quote from Wikipedia:
A camera raw image file contains minimally processed data from the image sensor of either a digital camera, image scanner, or motion picture film scanner. Raw files are named so because they are not yet processed and therefore are not ready to be printed or edited with a bitmap graphics editor.
