the rest seem lacking in contrast but that could be me
The problem with viewing photography on computers is that everyone's monitors are callibrated differently, so a particular shot will have a different colour cast, contrast, etc. on each viewer's monitor.I recently had my monitor callibrated with a Spyder, and I found thatALL ofmy thousands of photos had been incorrectly editted

Further to the issue,I sent some pictures to a publisher, and they stipulated that I submit my photosin Adobe RGB colour space and not sRGB [the normal web-friendly colour space that is Photoshop and other editor's default colour space] So after changing my photos to Adobe's colour space, I had to re-edit them cause the colour and contrast was all wrong - WOW, talk about complicated. If I view my shots on my son's or my wife's computer, they are also different.

So..... to answer your comment - the contrast could be out on your side, it could also be out on mine. My proofing would be to take them to a printing house and compare them, print vs monitor [that is, providing that the printers equipment is callibrated correctly :lol::lol::lol:]

Thanks for pointing this out, nlp239, it is a very valid issue in digital photography :-)

Jake, it was only today's images that were off. All the previous sets you posted were excellent - had no if or buts about them. Apologies for any trouble.

Mike, everything look okay on yours.

The elephants are an awesome sight Jake. I can only imagine what that would be like. Good thing reverse gear was in good working order.

Did you use the 100-400L for all those?

Yes VP, my 100-400 virtually stays on my camera. Apparently it is not as sharp as the prime 400, but the zoom is a must in the bush. A fixed 400 or more would be a hindrance, unless one has a few camera bodies with different lenses. Some Wildlife shooters use the 100-400 and the 28-300 on two cameras.

Thanks Bob, good to hear from you again
