It is not quite clear if there is much of the detail in the image, but overall it has a very good tone and color balance. The c 8080 is know for high contrast and low saturation, so it is better to preset it with contrast =-2 and saturation=+2. You would not have to lose much of the detail in post-processing then. It is worth experimenting though.

Thank you Sergey for your attention and constructive comments ! The original foto was underexposed (3 steps) - so probably some color informations were lost ! I replaced the pic you commented - it was altered a bit with a PSP "Aquarell" tool ! - with a "normal" processed one ! And that one shows some more details ! Regards

Hi Juan and thank you for your engaged interest in this foto ! As I mentioned in my reply to Sergey the original was verry underexosed ! I tried my best to saturate what was left from the colors and did some sharpening after that . Your comparisson with the "Augsburger Puppenkiste" (which I only can imagine ) is funny and probably accurat ! I perposly underexposed not to get burned areas at some of the houses and a blue sky ! This was eventually too much ! Concerning RAW : The 8080 is simply too slow for my patience and I do not have Camedia Master with a RAW converter - all I have is Photoshop vers. 6 with the Oly ORF import plugin and PSP 7.04 (my main tool) without a ORF reader ! Will see if I can get a reasonable (not expensive) RAW tool for my 8080 ! The 8080 camera - a good portion of it - is an exellent foto mashine delivering High quality pics if you have time and light ! Kind regards Juan
