A nice place and good job in PS stiching the shots together..

..but I'd prefer more intense colors here.. they look a bit washed off.. What do you think?

Cheers!

Very good point you bring out DigitalGal. Truth is the picture you see does not look like the picture I sent. There is quite a difference and Id like to know why. Ive been critical of so many pictures looking dull and flat when in fact they end up that way on the site. But similar to mine they probably didnt start out that way. Compare some of your pics with the files you sent and see if they match. Thanks.

I just downloaded the pic from here and compared it to the original and they match. Does anyone have any answers?

hmm.. I haven't had any problems of a kind.. I am sharing my pictures from my Flickr.com account though. But uploading a few times to a forum directly eberything has been ok.. as it was..

I think you have to calibrate a monitor of your computer.. I have seen the same problem with my bf laptop that is not calibrated and shows all the pics lighter than they are in fact. Check this matter out!

I am off for a long weekend.. see you next week!

Cheers!

Would my monitor be off and need calibration if the pics look different from my original and the view of the image from the forum? They should appear the same regardless of calibration. Im stumped. :?:

Well.. I cannot say.. Maybe you can ask for a comment from someone else.. I mean - an opinion of other members in forum about what do they see in regard with colors and saturation.. This was just my idea - based on my experience..

*But, if you say, the image is OK and you see the difference on your own screen between the original and uploaded pics.. :S I have no other clues..

Cheers!

Nice work in photoshop, but i agree with DigitalGal the colors look dull to me as well, maybe you did not shoot in srgb and had your camera and photoshop set to Adobe 1998, that could also be the reason we are seeing the colors dull

Ok mystery solved. When saving pics in Photoshop RGB you must save the sRGB profile then the pic displayed in forum is identical to the pic uploaded.
