Close to water..

These are some older shots from some weeks ago, still SD1 of course. Now looking at them thinking that maybe a bit too magenta. Oh well. :)

None of these are taken in HI mode, but in mixed MED and LOW mode.

Do I dare?


I told you..

    Your china shots are really rocking.

    Many (but not all) definitely do have a magenta cast though!! Easy enough to remove, but I’m not sure what your software situation is now.

    • Well, I don’t feel there is a magenta issue in SPP, but when saved it feels like there is one. So working a bit against this in Aperture (which is the only software on my machine capable of anything photoish) .. Hard to find a good working routine knowing it’s issues that will be solved.. That’s also main reason why I don’t put 100% energy into dealing with it. ;)

        Hi Carl,
        160GB of raw memories is hard to beat!
        I have some further thoughts on the color cast discussion. It is also a function of how the web browser renders the ICC profile embedded in a photo. I personally find it best to download an image and view it in a program which can properly recognize color profiles. Google chrome viewer for example doesn’t seem to display my PhotoPro color profile. Flickr seems to be the same. Do you have any thoughts?
        Does your website’s image viewer have such limitation?

    I think the solution is to open the files in a color-managed app like photoshop, then convert the image to sRGB (for web) and save.

    I’m just not sure Carl can do this with his software situation in China. Note sure whether Aperture is color-managed or not.
