From time to time I share some of the RAW files to one of my photos, and today is again one of those days. There are 5 files directly from the Sony a7R, taken in Vienna, Austria. So feel free to download them, try you editing skill, and share your result on my Facebook page.

You can get the RAW files and also 16bit Tiff version from the Dropbox forlder. I noticed that some of the older versions of PS and Lightroom do not like to open RAWs from newer cameras, so if thats you case, get the Tiff files.

Download the brackets here:

As always, I’m still author of the photo. You are free to share your edits further, but always link back to this blog and give me credit as the author and don’t use them for any commercial purpose. Thank you :)

The last guide I will mention this time, is one of the most favorites on the blog. It on how to remove lens flares from your photos. They really can easily ruin a great shot. Check out the guide here: How to remove lens flares.


One of the most important thing in photography is of course composition, so the last guide I will highlight here is my Composition rules guide. Composition is one of the areas, that even getting better, will effect you photos right away.
