On Photography!!!

I learned two important lessons through my personal experience with photography:

- ALWAYS Shoot in "Raw format"... Don't even think of any other format! You are loosing a lot by allowing your camera to make the critical decisions regarding which data of the picture to keep and which to discard (You also give control to the camera in processing the data that was kept)!

- Pay as much attention as you can to the "composition", which refers to the elements and the components of the picture ... The "rule of third" (where you object fills about a third of the frame) should do the job most of the time! So, think rationally about the elements of your picture!

To give an example for the above points, just look at the picture below and how it looked before processing (the image on the left is the image I would have gotten from the camera with a jpg format, but I was able to play with the "exposure" in the raw formatted file because of its richness), and after modifying the composition and utilizing the raw data (the right image)!
