Hi Stephen, you have a lovely portfolio but i feel this shot looks a little dull, i like the composition but the colours in my honest opinion could do with brightning up, i've done a mod but i'm no expert myself, just an amateur who likes playing with photo's in PS, lol, all the best for 2006, LOU x

Hi Lou, thanks for the comment. I really needed it as I knew there was something wrong. I've got a new computer (multimedia 17in. laptop) and the colours are crisp and lovely on it, but on my old CRT monitor they look muddy. I really don't know how my pics look on every one else's monitors though. If you're reading this could you do me a big favour and look at my pic of 4 days ago called "winter blues", and tell me if it looks vibrant blue or muddy and washed out? I'm trying to get to the bottom of this, and this is the kind of help I really need.

PS thanks for your comments on my other shots, glad you like them. You can see from the ones you clicked that I'm not averse to vibrant colour!

and thanks

Hi Stephen, A happy new year to you and your family. I see what you mean by washed out, all I did was adjust the contrast and brightness but still this doesn't seem right, probably your monitor needs some adjustment.
How's the new baby, is she working well for you?
By the way, see Mr Clarke has another photo on the RTE weather competition. Martin

Beautiful image, Stephen, but a bit washed out as mentioned above. I have also tried a mod on the shot.
