Re: A real life example of DR, tone and color gradation

Very interesting observation. To my eye the differences are not at all subtle but stand out clearly. I wonder if this could be a result of monitor differences or simply familiarity with the differences. I've noticed this when someone points out differences in exposure. I had a hard time seeing it until I calibrated my monitor, but I think it could also be a matter of looking for it now.

Maybe you are onto something there. My prints don't seem to correspond to the monitor and I've been making adjustments to printer settings to replicate the monitor. And the occasional feedback suggests the same for my web images. Hmm. One more thing to learn and some sort of gadget or software to buy.
Thanks Mako for that observation. I probably needed to hear that.
