Great shots. The color looks good on all of the pictures, however the one of the croc seems just a slight bit yellow. ( could be that's the way it looked when you took it:-))

Enjoy your spyder, we have one and has really helped us with our color management

Keep shooting

The first one is how I have been feeling in the mornings lately.

Nice pics Jake....but they look different to me also. They don't seem to have as much contrast as I remember most of yours having. The croc shot seems especiallylight to me although it is a clear shot. All this could be that my monitor needs calibrating also.

Thanks for your comments, guys, and also ythe feedback on the calibration.

After calibrating my monitor, I felt the color had improved [more balanced and richer], however, the shots were very dark. I've had to boost the gamma on my vidoe card a tad to make it acceptable. Even looking at some of yourshots here at Steve's showed them to be very dark, so I'm still not quite happy that I've settled on what is the correct balance. It does mean that my editting could then be done incorrectly, and I supposecomparing it with a print would bethe test,

providing that the printing house has it's system set up correctly

Hi Jake. Once again you have treated us on this side to a wonderful display of the variety you have. Superb captures of all of them. Now to put my 2 cents in on your cablibrationof your monitor with the Spyder. Have no idea what that is but I believe I see a little too much yellow although I know I would have never noticed it had you not asked.

Thanks Houston, always appreciate your comments, and for the feedback on the "yellow" - I will have to investigate the issue.

Hi Jake - You do an excellent job at capturing the wildlife that are photographed alot less.

As far as the monitor goes, they do seem to have a bit less colour and contrast then normal, although they all look very realistic.
