    I've just started messing with RAW (i know, i know) and I'm amazed at how far you can push the color saturation. This shot has no artistic qualities or sense of design, I shot it so I could play with RAW workflows. For those interested, the workflow was: camera > Lightroom > Photoshop. Very excited about Aperture here.

    Can't wait to shoot my next portrait session RAW. (+jpg for safety)

    Just be careful with saturation, your eye quickly becomes used to how much you apply and anything less looks dull when you may actually be way too far. That shot looks good though so it's probably not a problem.

    I find it to be a little overdone. But in an otherwise uninteresting shot, it does liven it up.

    RAW is the way to go, once you use it and realize what it can do you wont even shoot jpg again..
