Default A visit to the pumpkin farm

It was a dark and dreary afternoon (sounds like the beginnng of a novel), but I was pleased with the colors from my K2000 and DA40.



And I was pleased with the sharpness of the little DA40, although I see this image is a little crooked. Oops.



I see that the images are brighter on my monitor at http://www.pbase.com/drwindmill/forum&page=2 than they are above, so any tips for posting here would be appreciated. Thanks for looking.

Hey Doc.
I love the old scale! Both pix look good.
I went to your site, and they look identical on my monitor.

Hmmm. Thanks, GW. I'll bet it's the dark background versus the white one.

Very nice shots - love the sharpness of the second one you posted.

The background of a picture is very important - I've noticed that a picture that looks fine in lightroom, with its default dark grey background (and which I really like) really need more adjustment when I look at them with Photoshop's light grey background. It's also why pros are so careful about choosing the right color for matting.

More nice fall colors. Like them both.

I also went to your web site and found no difference in the photos.

Wonderful pictures of some fantastic scenery on your site. They brought back many fond memories of my visit to the Canadian Rockies. No one should miss seeing these outstanding images!
