I can also see a beautiful coherence between the landscape and the cloudscape :-)

Thanks Bahadir,

I enjoy your comments very much. I also think you live in a lovely place. The sea is a great friend of mine. I have sailed for years and the water is magic. I took this shot because the clouds were right.

Great catch Boily I did not even notice the slight tilt to the right.

Thanks Kman!

You know when I post my pics on here they appear flat (color wise). Do others have this problem. I have checked to make sure I am saving the ICC profile but it does not seem to help.

This picture "pops" when printed or in phtoshop elements or nikon capture but not here. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Bill

Hi Bill. Check this link out to set your colour management for your monitor, printer and if you use it-photoshop. I made my way through the suggested settings I should have for all 3 of these components, and now what I see in ps, I see the same on the browser and viewer. My prints are very accurate also, to what I crank out in photoshop. It takes a bit of time to set it up, but it's worth it for the consistency. Oh, and this picture has lots of "pop" on my monitor, so it must be your settings somewhere in this line of options.....Don.

Thanks Don,

I have a monitor calibration set up but have not run it in about 6 months. They tell me to run the calibration monthly but ... well I have been lazy. Guess I will get the Gretagmcbeth setup out and have a go at it. Thanks for your insight.

Bill

I just used the Adobe Gamma monitor calibration that comes with photoshop cs. It's very simple to do. But I set up photoshop cs to all the suggested settings this fellow suggested. I don't know which editor you use, so maybe this link won't apply to you. Check it out though. It has some valuable insights.....Don.
