Love the big stopper effect on the waves/motion. Pockets/strands of white in that azure blue Paul. A beauty.

Oh, seems a little more vibrant than the original here ... checked Profile and all is well, but the blues look a little more saturated and turquoise. Hmmmmmmmm???

Cheers all though Smile

A beautiful image and I really like the effect of the big stopper combined with that wonderful light picking out the detail in the cliffs.

Water does look a bit blue Paul, its a more noticeable tint in the spray in the shadow of the rocks on my screen.

Fine comp and detail with the light picking out the mines nicely. I love Cornwall, but have yet to get a decent image there.

The long exposure has worked well on the water movement Paul.

Nice scenic shot and dynamic range. The whitest area is measuring R=243, G=242, B=250, so a very slight blue in the white.

Cheers guys.

Thanks too Willie, I was aware of that but and on the original file it looks fine to me. I can't understand the slight saturation boost and addition of a touch of yellow to make the light-mid tone blues look a little more turquoise, particularly noticeable in the sky and patches of sea.

Thought it might be a browser issue and it probably is:

I use Chrome by default and it looks very slightly sat boosted and colour shifted.
Also looked in IE [same issue as Chrome].
Just checked in FF and it's fine - which doesn't surprise me as FF is colour profile savvy.

Seems to me that sRGB profiles are not as 'neutral' as I was lead to believe ... would welcome any suggestions as to the absolute best colour profile to use for web!!!

Chrome doesnt do any colour management contrary to popular belief, as Im sure you know.

Try opening a report with the IT guys, - maybe they are doing something theyre not aware of.

Its sRGB for the web, - and FF has a couple of adjustments for colour that you can adjust, - theyre not on by default, so check for FF colour management on Mozilla.

Cheers Willie, I am aware that most browsers don't support colour management by default - in particular Chrome. That's the main reason why all my shots are converted to sRGB prior to upload. Uploading a shot with a different colour profile isn't prudent because of this. That said, I can't understand why a shot with an sRGB colour profile should have this slight shift in sat + colour, as the profile is supposedly web savvy?

My FF installation was made Colour Profile ready a while back, but relying on it to display correctly was a little remiss as ordinary viewers [without profiling] would see a 'different' shot to what I had posted.

May look at opening a report, but I have some more tests to do first.

Thanks for your time, much appreciated.
