A version of this shot has proved to be popular on Flickr so I thought I may as well add it here. The title refers to the fact that this was the first shot I developed from the RAW after moving on to Lightroom 4. It's also part of a test series taken with the 45-200mm lens without a protective filter fitted in front of the main optic. Using the lens 'naked' like this does seem to improve contrast, sharpness and focus lock - though you do have to balance the risks and there remain situations where I still fit filters to all my lenses.
