    Very moody, and a slight uphill cruise captain!

    Good but better in mono. The liens are much more accentuated, giving a dynamic, in motion effect

    A few questions:

    Assuming you are shooting JPEG, and assuming minimal cropping, your images seem to be small file sizes, and small dimensions? Are you shooting in the highest possible JPEG resolution? Are you re-sizing for uploading, if so, dont, there no file size limit.

    Difficult light, very bright, high dynamic range, and I cant tell time of day from exif as the camera time is not correct.

    Its a lovely scene mario.

    How it look in mono depends a lot on how youve converted the original, and you can easily end up with a dark image even if the original is brighter.

    So, if you still have the original colour, can you upload it as a mod?

    Its also a very high contrast shot, - might be the light, might be your processing, I cant tell. So a mod also needs a considerably lower contrast, so I look forward to the original. Foe viewing, you dont need much of a calibration, just contrast and brightness, and most calibration processes suggest you leave brightness and contrast at the factory default. To check this, scroll down to the bottom of this screen and theres a calibration strip, bottom left; you should be able to see all of the 16 distinct shades.

    I did load a mod anyway, and Ive cropped a bit.

    Ive mentioned many times previously about spot metering; it will, and does for you always cause underexposure; this is very, very common from my experience here; spot metering is not designed for metering off a single point, it meant to be used to meter a few different points, all neutral, and a calculation made according to experience; so I suggest you revert to the default matrix mode.

    Regards, hope all is well,

  • Moira, I just LOVE the Dublin series, - as a part Irish person you will understand how your journey, so well documented in this series really resonates with a person born and raised there, as I am.


  • Beautiful set of landscapes, well done.

  • I like your new PF pic Vic.

  • Very nice portfolio
