I am slowly but surely getting round to looking at all the photos I took when away in Dubai – however I am still not getting very far with this .RWL file extension. To me the quality that is lost in the raw file is immense – I’m actually quite annoyed having tried everything I’ve researched and read about – still no go! I have one more option to try now that I’ve changed from CS4 to CS5. Other than that I will have to get in touch with Leica. I think shooting in .jpg is the way forward you know – what you see is what you get. On another note – I absolutely the LOVE Aperture software!

Anyway – here are some more shots I’ve retrieved.
