I was recently out walking by the Cam, near where we live. It was a grey overcast day, and there appeared little to inspire me. So, in time-honoured tradition, I tried to look for interesting details, colour and texture.
I shot in RAW - something I am comitted to do from now on - and the result is this little image below.
Cropped a little to remove unwanted distracting leaves, and then adjusted in the supplied Canon software for 350D RAW conversion. It was great to bring back some of the detail in the shadow area - much easier and subtle than in JPEG....
