Hi all. I need a little input on these. I bought a new monitor, and am hoping I've calibrated it correctly. Do these look ok for colour and brightness to you? Thanks..Don

Don, I'm not so sure how to provide you reliable feedback..Well, all I could say, they just look outstanding on my screen! For the first two, due to thir richly saturated sunset colours it might be hard to predict how they actually looked like. Yet the bird in your last photo could hardly look any more real than this!!

Thanks Bahadir. Yes, it might be easier to take some test photos, and then examine them after full editing. As long as the sky is orangy and pink without any wierd hues to them, I think I'm pretty close. Sure is a pain to get it set up right. Might have to get a real calibrator to do it properly. Thanks...Don

Don,

Great photographies!

There are two (or more) ways to calibrate a monitor.

The best is to do it by means of hardware, for instance Colorvision Spyder.

It is not like all participants in a photographic forum have their monitors calibrated the same way, which may cause some (or even a lot of) misrepresentation and -understanding

Again: great pictures; look great on a 8 bit monitor anyhow

/T

nice photos...It would only be on your monitor where you could tell if the photos have the right colors and so on....only because every monitor is different as far as color setting and such go ...it might be close to right on mine being I have cal..mine as close to neutral as pos...over all the shots look good....

Thanks Willow! My old CRT was a lot easier to calibrate than this LCD. Probably should invest in a good calibrater......cheers.....Don
