We cropped the
in the camera using the Nikon D80 "Trim" feature found
in the camera's Retouch Menu and saved it as a copy.
The photo shown
above was edited in Nikon Capture NX. In a few easy steps Colour
Control Points were used to recover additional highlight details
and to reduce a cool background cast. Colour Boost and a slight
unsharp mask (USM) was also applied.
The Nikon D80
digital SLR's 420-segment 3D Matrix Metering II system performed
well, despite the difficult lighting situation presented in this
scene by the uneven backlight from the sun.
