Morning all.

I have been itching to make a dent in the raw queue from Africa, and especially the Leopards! Well I have finally found a few moments over the last couple of evenings.

This has also offered me a good chance to give Lightroom 4’s new raw processing engine a workout and I must say I am liking the new shadow/highlight controls. Makes processing much quicker as I am not having to battle artifacts that can crop u even with minor shadow boosting. I always keep my processing to minor cropping and colour/contrast correction and anything that can speed this up further is great!

You can see the first few images out of the gate in the below slideshow, iPhone/iPad users click here for mobile viewing as the slideshow below will appear as a single image for you.

Thanks all, Rich.
