    May I ask for opinion please?

    1. What do you think about that photo?
    2. Can you see any colour/saturation/brightness differences between the two?



    Thank you

    EDIT: I probably should add that this is not a trick question. Two of them have different colour managment. If you don't want to answer question nr 1, please ignore it.

    Thank you

    What's funny is that they both look exactly the same here on both of my monitors.

    First one had ProPhoto RGB embedded in it, the second was sRGB (I hate working in sRGB).

    Love the composition Adrian but I find quite how OOF the foreground/background scenery is a little distracting...

    Just wanted to try something different with this shot. If I had everything in focus, this would be just another landscape shot. I know what you mean though, as those were my thoughts when I was PPing it. In the end I decided to post it.

    Thanks Jim

    I know what you mean and it might have worked better (for me personally) if you didn't have the leading line of OOF Fence Posts :)

    I must admit, my eye is instantly drawn to the horizon/sky as it is such a lovely colour, and then I find myself scanning down the picture to the bit that is in focus. Once found, it is a great shot, but it's not prominent enough to draw your eye in at the beginning.

    Another very good point. Yes, I think you are spot on. The foregound in-focus subject is not prominent enough thanks to its similar colour pattern with the grass. It just blends with OOF mid-ground grass.

    Hmm, I could either make the foreground a bit lighter or take it down and forget about it.

    In the end I decided to ditch that shot and forget about it :)

    This is another of my few weeks old shots (the weather is so uninspiring lately).

    Max lens aperture - f/4
    Exposure - 25s at f/4
    Flash - Not fired, compulsory mode
    Exposure bias - 0 EV
    Exposure mode - Manual
    Exposure prog. - Manual
    ISO speed - ISO 100
    Metering mode - Spot

    Wish I could post bigger versions here :suicide:

    Thanks! :)

    I have Flickr Pro account, but not posting there anymore as I have my website now. Flickr will run out end of march I think and I have no plans renewing it (been there for few years).

    It is not hosting that I moan about, it's the forum width. If you post a picture that is even a tiny bit wider than the forum width, it resizes it and makes it very soft. I know this is not photography forums after all, but this makes it quite pictures un-friendly place TBH.

    If you post anything here which is more than 700 pixels wide the forum will ruin it.

    I don't get why Stuart won't agree to make AVF variable width forums. So many of them are and I can't see any problems.

    I could fit AVF 3 times on my monitor :facepalm:

    I agree I would prefer B&W, but for some reason the B&W one is a bit darker than the colour one. There is not much colour in the colour version anyway, just a bit of blue :)
