Mural in Almaty


Well-Known Member
I'm back from a trip to some rather uncommon destinations: Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, and Turkmenistan. And yes, this includes the “Gates of Hell.”
It was the first time that I shot everything in RAW (with low-quality JPEGs as references) and that I swapped lenses. I used to always shoot in JPEG with a single general-purpose zoom lens, but I found myself editing most of the JPEGs anyhow, so it made more sense to start from RAW to preserve as much as possible.

I still have about 1300 of more than 1400 photos to process, so this could take a while.
Here's something already: a mural painting in Almaty, the former capital of Kazakhstan.
