  • Then don't read it and put the ice pick away?
  • "...it is recommended to select a monitor with as high a contrast ratio as possible." Why would you do that if a monitor has a higher contrast ratio than paper? Surely you should choose a monitor ...
  • Replied in Great conversion
    A great conversion and good use of relative contrast against what looks like a difficult background. However the doughnut rings in the upper left quarter stand out as they are relatively harsh, and ...
  • Replied in Original of 3
    No, don't worry about being conservative, just use the full range of tones and contrasts available to you rather than just a part of them, your image will look sharper and have more punch.  ;-)
  • No, monitors are calibrated to display accurate colour and part of that is the brightness and gamma. You set the monitor to display RGB data as accurate reference colour and you profile your ...
  • Replied in Original of 3
    It's a good image, I'm just offering alternatives that may help.
  • There has to be some standard point from which everyone can work with to gain consistency and accuracy in both colour and tone and normally you would work to having an RGB value of middle grey to ...
  • I assume this was inspired by my post. ;-) But why? Why edit to a deliberately un-calibrated monitor that will print differently to what you edit on screen? It just makes no sense, it reduces photo ...
  • 3 is too flat to me, and the sky is too dark. It's not the processing but that you've taken a fairly crisp and high contrast shot and compressed it into a smaller and darker space. If you look at ...
  • This would be the best I can get it without it looking unreal. However as you indicated it's more about the content than the quality so I would be tempted to print up to 8" or even 10" high, you ...
  • And yet you don't accept Nikon's, (or even Sigma's when it comes to their lenses), explanations over your theory? Perhaps the sensor is designed around the way the light passes through the layers ...
  • LOL. I get it. ;-) Now you prove that a principal exists in deep water it now applies to your theory of lens design. Add a couple of meaningless graphics with a few unsubstantiated statements and ...
  • Is that a trick question? ;-) Water absorbs the red end of the spectrum, it doesn't block them. It's also generally classed as a liquid. Water's absorption is due to it's almost unique chemical ...
  • I'm sure Marianne will correct me if I'm wrong, but my understanding is NO. You think in 'common sense' terms when light does not behave in that manner. It is quite possible that the 20mm glass ...
  • I don't think you're asking the right question, and the question's worded as though saturation is the property of colour. Because the saturation slider is the control for colour many photographers ...
  • Now I'm confused. If it's a myth then why are you using the symmetries derived from it to define composition? That there are some quite complex and exact symmetries that can be defined by ...
  • So you missed the bit about static and dynamic rectangles then, (in the book)? With the static being rectangles made of whole integers such as 3:2 and dynamic being the irregular numbers such as ...
  • Because you apply a grid that's entirely based on their formation and classical proportions across photographic images to explain their composition. The grid you show is derived from a Golden ...
  • It helps for others to see how this 'special' grid is formed and from where it is derived. It really comes from how you create shapes with a pen, straight edge, set square and compass. It is how ...
  • To be honest the first time I saw that photo I thought that it was a reference to a well known renaissance work. When Googled I found that there was a series with one based on The Last Supper. ...
