The search for the best RAW conversion program for the years 2006 to 2008 was a primary target and I tried to get the best amount of details without introducing too much noise into the photos. That period, I came to a point that I had to make a decision regarding which path to take and devote my efforts to it. I could either chose the path to learning how to frame effectively or the path to how to best extract the details out of a photo (keep in mind that I had an entry-level DSLR camera with poor lens at my disposal and a 6-megapixel sensor). I could not follow both paths at the same time, since I could not be taught effectively from two masters the tricks (like the dogs also can't). So, I decided to focus my efforts on extracting the best amount of details, giving value to my poor equipment by making it work more effectively.

By 2006, having my first DSLR for almost a year I started making the most out of my photos by using RAW files as base. 6-megapixel JPG files were already taking my photos far more than I could take them some time ago. New experiences demanded the urge to learn new ways of processing the results and my camera was already taking advantage of the new (for me) RAW format that proved to be an exciting area of study for the years to come (and there are still many secrets to be unlocked).
