Can I ask out there is 'aj's' image this week very very heavy on the blacks, because since calibrating my monitor I am worried now something might be set wrong since seeing aj's pic.

Yes Heavy, heavy

(Lilly: Capture One LE has a sample image that is helpful for checking calibration - just load it up and check the skin tones & colour patches. Also, it will probably take you a while to adjust to a calibrated monitor after using a non-calibrated one for so long )

I find this quite helpful in determining how good the "resolution" of whites and blacks is.



Ideally you would see the ones in the black and the white area (here at work I can see the white 1 and black 3 (but it's depending on ambient light, of course)).

Hey, I'm in a similar boat. I'm picking up all my new kit on Friday but won't get a chance to fire off a few shots in anger until Tuesday at the earliest - I have to spend the weekend fitting a shower and tiling a Room!

Oh well..

I'll post an image on the "your photos" area when I can. I'm sure it'll raise a smile or two

Lilly, your monitor is up the spout, this is a hi- tone image, all whites and light greys!






Yes it is dark, it hides a lot of the litter and silly houses but still shows the lines of metalwork.

Hi Prieni,
What happened there on your Hawaii entry. Did a elephant flew over and take a big dump, while you were enjoying the scene
i am very glad he missed you
Martin.
Best regards,

Martin.


Curious about my photography?? Just Follow the Light.

You are only half as glad as I am! That could have been rather unpleasant...

I thought of submitting this one but decided against it as there is no street to be seen...


I would have pruned it to be within the 800 pixel limit, of course. (I have to admit that I was tempted to make this weeks entry 801 pixels wide )

thanks for that,

Is that pretty OK?

Very useful.

At work, on a monitor set up for CAD, I could not work out what you were talking about

At home I can see White 1 and Black 3.

I've seen this 'test card' before and on seeing it again:-

The left half is completely black on my monitor but I can see all of the numbers on the right (white) side. The number one is very feint.

I've tried tweaking brightness & Contrast to no avail.

Any ideas?
