  27 The Great Post-Processing Challenge
  Capturing an image in camera is one thing, but in many cases, it is only part of the story. While it is true that Raw images have to be processed, many of the images we see take on an added, possibly dimension in post processing.
Tonight, we set a challenge; given a RAW file, what can you do with it?
This promises to be both fun and instructive – more details in due course.
