Does it make much of a difference shooting in RAW?

They look pretty good tbh. Suppose just keep practising, I think most of mine look shite but other people really like em and think there top quality.
Are you comparing s**t quality to soft focus or light quality?

i think your last one looks better then the first too yours appear more defined, tfirst ones look a little washed out.....i think its either you or your monitor.....i have a mac and view images slightly brighter then a lcd screen....your images are pretty good.

I think yours look better than the others. The first of yours would be improved by not cropping the front of the cars and holding the camera horizontal but the second one is good I think.

Camera, remote and good glass

When shooting and finding you skys are burned out take a spot meter reading somewhere neutral in the shot, You will be able to get a better quality image.

i think from this you are already getting high quality images, and its all in your head... welcome to photography, its a painful world of perfectionism and the never ending hunt for perfect images....

ALWAYS SHOOT DIM........shoot your images a few e/v down, i take images a full stop and brighten them later....as above burnt out area loose there image data.... plus taking a pic at a lower e/v will give you a slightly faster shutter speed, reducing the chance of blur

Always been told to go the other way without blowing anything out of course. Underexposing and correcting in photoshop brings out a lot of noise, going the other way can help reduce it.

You have a decent camera so prob just a case of learning how to use it and lots of practice.

Going to take some photography courses in the new year so will be a pro after them lol

I use a remote, and a tripod. Also, i was told to shoot a few exposure stops up instead of down.. Confused :(

Also, thanks for the compliments

Good luck with your images then lol 1 stop will not effect noise if your worried shoot raw. how can you re gain burnt out image data ? also you are lowering your capability shooting + ev...... shoot dim or bang on 0. YOU CANT PROCESS BURN !......if you shoot - 2ev you will be likely to experience noise.....am talking 1ev here...at the most



that guy in the link is talking about exposing correctly using histograms (in bright/ good light situations) if ya can expose correctly and have time to review the histo's nice, but some time i dont, i personally hate burnt out sky.
