Fyi, here is something for people interested in colour (theory):

Pavel Kosenko has now made his book on colour available for free to read on his blog:

You may know Pavel from the following blog posts previously mentioned in this forum:

* What is good color:

Excellent, truly a tour-de-force, which seems to cover everything without getting too technical.

Off-topic, but here's a few more about different general subjects:

Lighting:

Sharpness:

Focus:

They are my go-to references on the said subjects.

Just interested in the technology.

Looks interesting, but I find the light grey text on a white background hard to read.

I usually bump such stuff up with ctrl+ (FireFox/Win7).

Well, sure. I did that too.

It's just a bit annoying that someone  who has prepared a multi-page treatise on the correct rendering of image color seems oblivious to the fact that his blog color scheme is sub-optimal.

Sans-serif type face, too.

People with good vision need to be reminded that many viewers of blogs have poor vision and/or poor monitors.
