People often ask me what the RAW looks like, so here it is for comparison for a photo that I'll be uploading in a few hours.
I prefer this... more real.... both nice
I prefer this version. While I generally like darker colors, I feel that some of the natural beauty of NATURE is lost when you edit it. Not to say that the edited shot isn't good, it's awesome, it's just....less natural. There's a level of irony of editing a picture of nature.
I think I prefer this version, at least in this case.
It's still really beautiful!
