3299 – O Rei Das Meias

Here’s another example for extreme contrast. On the JPEG out of the camera the inside of the shop was completely black. Of course by raising the shadows selectively in post-processing, I have raised noise as well (I’d deem the shop’s inside being in ISO 6400 territory), but by selectively applying noise reduction, I was able to get a pretty satisfying image.

Would have a full-frame camera done better? Sure. Would a film camera have been able to come even close? Never, ever 🙂

As regards dynamic range and malleability of image data we have advanced so far, that any complaints would be laughable. I declare the problem of dynamic range solved 😀
