Sorry Don, I didn't mean to hijack your thread. I'm done.

No problem at all Steve and Dave. I find the conversation interesting and educating. I processed these on purpose to be "punchy" as I stated in a reply to Dave's first reply. I only asked about his monitor, because I have mine calibrated, and wasn't real sure if these were over the top or not. Sorry Dave. I wasn't being facitious about your monitor. I should have expained it more clearly as to my meaning. I usually go for a flatter process, but decided to experiment a little on these....cheers...Don

Just because I believe my monitor to be calibrated, doesn't make it so.

Hi Dave,

Believe me, I don't mind being critqued. I use it to my benefit I hope. I asked about your monitor, because mine is also calibrated, but I wasn't real sure if these were too "punchy". They are very contrasty on mine too. As I said, I was just messing about. I usually go for a flatter process, but decided to experiment a little. I should have explained myself better in the first reply. My apologies....cheers....Don

He, heh, you have nothing to apologise for.

Good shots! And as my favorite wine guide tells me, the best wine in the world is the wine you like best.

nice series, Don... i really like the last one. the light hitting the side of his head, while the rest is largely in shadow, makes for a very dramatic photo. nicely done!

I love the drama ("look") of the last photo. It makes a profound statement, which, I believe, is what the artist/photographer desires.
