Default Sunset over the thames... 4 pics..

Hi Guys

4 pics taken tonight on a slight detour heading home from work via the Thames. As my minitor is out colour wise, I'd like some feedback on whether the colours look accurate or not ? The sun ended up setting very quickly .. within 15-20mins of me taking the first pic. All taken with the E3 + 14-54ZD and converted to jpg using LR3









cheers

Harj

Colors are fine Harj. Really like #1, it is unusual and the setting sun's rays really make the picture

Hi Steve

Thanks for the reply - I couldnt work out if I'd over saturated the pics while PP them in LR. I try not too go over board within LR and work with the histogram but my monitor has probs with greens(they show as yellow) so I'm never sure if I've over done it or not.

The first pics was totally by accident.. I hadn;t meant to go under the bridge but somehow ended up being there and took the shot.

Colors look fine to me also, & my monitor is calibrated.

(Although I'll need to check that since I find myself agreeing with Steven...)

Hi Harj,

The colors look quite accurate to me on the Mac. #2 and #3 are very good IMHO.

....Harj,

I don't know what Steven and Ted are referring to regarding 'getting older' because that doesn't seem to be applying here (hi hi) but I do agree with Zig because the colors look accurate on my MAC too.

Look pretty good on my screen also. 4 nice pics. I like the scullers on the river but I'll go with the first.
