    Re: Photo-a-day

    Personally, bobsters edits look a lot, lot more natural, the skin looks pretty much spot on, nice natural tones, in comparison to your original edit, your image is really warm.

    The actual picuture itself is a good photo though, captures a nice mood

    Also, bobster, thanks for sharing the crops, it's amazing to see how much better/different an image looks with a creative crop!

    One I took in the winter months with my iPhone 4 - not edited.

    i haven't touched your exposure (was spot on) - but i have her face a little more depth with some burning..

    how does this bar look to you?

    Yeah I've adjusted the brightness using that scale from your website before, so I have it with 0% being fully white and 100% being full black but I assume that's not the only thing involved in monitor calibration? Over at talkphotography there's a Pantone Spyder calibration unit going around that anyone can borrow, I may do that.

    There's a variation between them and the 0 and 100 respectively. I'm not sure how much of a difference there should be (and I'm at my work computer right now so will have to do the same once I'm home), there is one but it's slight.

    Sorry about the reflections. Some shots you just have to catch straight away. This is our neighbour's very timid cat, enjoying the drain!

    Nice Nuthatch, shame about the OOF branch in the foreground, but you can't always get the perfect shot eh!
