Photographing Final Fantasy 14 #1: Cooking Time in Limsa Lominsa

Finally I was able to make the move from my unworthy laptop to something you could call a gaming PC. Still not the best one but I prefer it to the previous "all minimum" settings. I can barely recognize the areas I already visited. Now that´s what I call a Realm Reborn!

Whoa! Shadows and dynamic lights!

To start off this screenshot series I put up a few pictures that try to tell the story of a Monk that became a Culinarian.

What are you doing? Looks interesting.

Seems he was afflicted with severe food envy.

I want some too!

As he soon found out, cooking is not as easy as it looks.

The look of pure concentration.

You need soooo many different ingredients. And prices at the market board can soar pretty high.

Are they serious?

But in the end, patience and perseverance will pay off.

I did it!

And you will feel like the king of the world.

Praise the Sun!

And that´s it for today. I enjoyed the shooting sessions but I am not satisfied with the picture quality. I use no additional software to capture them and they look really pixelated when zooming in. Do you mind this quality loss? Any advice for post-processing the pictures after they have been taken? Thanks in advance.
