    Very glad to know many badminton and photography lovers here, including Red and Cheung, I like your pics very much. I've just known this website a week ago. Let's share my pics to you.

    First comes to my favourite XD lady player SaraLee ;)

    I was very impressed by this Indonesia LD during HK Open 2005, they would call out for every smash.

    nice pics, btw. good captures of the moment. :)

    and yes, the latter pics are better in sharpness, but the earlier ones are just as good in timing and composition.

    yes, those are some nice pictures.:)
    i m quite sure the quality of the original files are ok. from my eyes, the only problem of those earlier pics were just saved in low jpeg quality.;) um.....can't be wrong!:D
    by the way, welcome to badmintoncentral forum achan!

    haha, so you found us. I really like the Saralee shot, the one of Fu/Cai together defending and the Zheng Bo shot.

    Talking about the quality for the D70s - would RAW and then conversion to jpeg give better quality?

    I should upload those again. The quality is better and correction is easier to use RAW. I used about 24 man-hour to trim, correct white balance, reduce noise, and adjust exposure of my 1400 files. Thanks for introducing me this website. Have you browse the photos of Korea Open 2006 on the other thread? The pics are very high standard.

    wow, the quality is so much better now, can clearly see the definition. what do you mean when you say you touched it up?

    conversion of file from RAW to JPG after triming, correction of white balance, reduction of noise, and adjustment of exposure.
