Humboldt Bay and Samoa Bridge, December 2012

This is another photograph that I took with the Canon S100. Again, this was hand-held, and was saved in the raw format. The ability to save images in the raw provides the digital negative with all the available data from the twelve megapixel sensor. Most other small point and shoot cameras use jpeg compression, and the resulting digital negative contains just a fraction of the original data to work with. The raw files, have more latitude for editing/manipulating, and for me, are the preferred format.
