Taken the same time as the panos I posted earlier (a couple of weeks back), and the Autumn colours are just starting to show here.

It's a shame, I was here this week and the colours are really great, but the light was so bad I'm pretty sure I've got nothing usable Maybe if it actually stops raining for 10 minutes I'll try and get back there again!

A lovely shot. The sky is wonderful and the sunshine on the bridge is fantastic.

The only thing I would say (and this is just on my monitor) but I might boost the saturation a bit, the colours seem a little muted.

Thanks, I understand what you're saying about the saturation, but the colours were quite muted at the time! I've attached a version with a 20% boost to the reds/yellows/greens only, see what you think. Looks a little over-adjusted to me, it all comes down to personal taste I guess :-)

Thanks for the comments though!

John.

On second thoughts.... I seem to be loosing saturation when moving from color-managed photoshop view to sRGB web view: there seems to be much less difference in this version now it's on the web, than there was in photoshop. I've just recently replaced my hard drive and reinstalled everything, so maybe I've got some new color management issues :O

Anyone else experience a color change/loss when exporting from Adobe-RGB to sRGB ?

Thanks,

John.

That looks better to me, certainly not over-done.

In any event the main thing is how the print looks, web output is only ever approximate anyway.

That's true: I ran some test prints off this morning (using these shots actually) and they seem to be fairly close to what I see on my screen, so hopefully my colour profiles can't be too far off. I'll just have to pay a bit more attention to web-conversion I guess.

Thanks for the comments, John.

john,

i lose some saturation in my conversions to web as well.. which is odd, because i convert from Adobe to srgb in photoshop and it looks fine.. but once saved and posted, i lose some contrast and saturation..

if you shot raw on this one, or just something to keep in mind... with this scene, if you had dialed in -1/2 to -2/3 on exposure comp, i think you would find this scene to be much more saturated.. and still be pleasing exposure wise as well..

nice composition though.. but maybe take a tad off the bottom..
