A Child In Time

Someone remind me please the reason I decided to only ever shoot in RAW. Have 2 weeks of about 500 shots to go through (& yes they are all in RAW). I seem to be spending all my time in the study these days editing pictures(damn, me stupid). I am missing/have missed Smallville, damn, but thank God for Sky +
So here I am, 5 hours later still in the study, eyes weary, Babyface's live DVD playing in the background, fingers tapping away at keyboard and mouse, hating Adobe with each passing moment, at back of mind thinking "do I really have to go to work tomorrow?" Oh well Sinem is sat behind me slaving over her plagiarising student's coursework (there is a God :) and her dreaming of the day she will be a Doctor, a housewife/writer/novelist/poet/photographer and web developer?? (don't ask) ).
The shot for today was taken back in the days when Auto was king, and JPEG was the only format I knew you could shoot in (aaaahhhh the good ol days). Gone to the lake to horn the skills, and chanced upon this shot.  A Child In Time. Had been taking lots of shots of the scene but felt it still needed something and bang came my little man to make my job complete.  
Okay I know you all came to read Sinem's daily "words" (TRAITORS). So here she is.......

A CHILD IN TIME

Free from fear, doubt and worry, a child holds the summer sunshine in his smile, grasps time in the palms of his small hands, and runs towards the swans, the wind in his wake. Wherever life may have taken him from that point in time, however tall and strong he might have grown, the child is there in time – forever young, forever happy, and forever smiling. The child holds an eternity in that frail frame, 'the foster child of silence and slow time' (Keats, 'Ode on a Grecian Urn)
When smiles fade, wrinkles deepen, eyes lose their fire, all we've got left as mere proof we've lived a life worth living, with all its joy, passion and heartache are the photographs of years gone by, of that old man who was once a child in time.
Therefore… Art does not just outlive life but celebrates it for eternity.

Suby I never knew you had an emotional side to you. Well as far as RAW is concerned I don't use ACR except for some rare cases instance for just a straight conversion. You can use RawShooter Essentials or my personal favourite, CaptureOne Pro, the former is free and the latter is really expensive. They both have the option to do batch raw conversions so you are laughing with them.

Interesting shot by the way.
This is one of the rare shots that looks good even though the back of the subject is completely turned towards the camera (breaks the usual rules doesn't it).

As for RAW, I wouldn't process all your 500 shots. Only the ones you pick out as being worth candidates for touching up. If you're as bad at photography as me, that means probably around 10 out of the 500 shots will be worth working on. Viola, problem solved!
Suby & Sinem: Maven, nope not looking to process all shots, however I have got a lot better in capturing images I still have about 400 or more to process, customer wants most pics (more money for me smile ). Thanks for the advice.

Suby & Sinem: The gauntlet has been thrown down, how dare these puny humans doubt my status as the "worlds best photographer"? Let the pictures do the talking. (Note to self, buy "How to be world's best photographer in 24hrs" ASAP)

Your much better at this than I am.......great shot.
mmm, ripples like watery tar.

RAW blegh. Can be painful. I like them bitesized but big enough to eat.
Great moment-in-time capture, luv the post-processing. you have some good work here, I'll be back.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Clarence, I'LL try to keep the good images rolling in (but if I know my rotten luck my next upload will be a dud) smile Jide & Asiko. "SUBY RULES" smile

I thought I was having a bad day running on 2 hours sleep. You're words made me feel better. I'm going to get back to work now. Fruity Pebbles all over the living room floor and three of the five kids are sick today.

Great photo, BTW. I'd like to be doing that right now.
Suby & Sinem: Micki, you have just made Sinem's day, she loves it when people leave comments about her writing. (now she ain't going to stop smiling smile Nice one mate.

Agree with "The Maven's" comment (1st sentence). Don't know much about RAW so will leave that to the experts to enlighten us all...
Suby & Sinem: Sorry sis, The RAW image format is the data as it comes directly off the CCD, where no in-camera processing is performed. That is all done later and takes a hell of a long time, then images converted into TIFF or JPEG images, find it easier to correct any mistakes if any.
