    Are you using a 3g dongle (etc)? As it sounds like you are seeing the image compressed maybe, as there's no banding on the image I see.

    Re: Photo-a-day

    Same here, my 22" shows no banding at all...

    My effort for today is a cricket on a Southern March /hybrid/ Common Spotted Orchid. Original was uncropped but some crits elsewhere got me to rework it a little, there may be some noise reduction artefacts in this one, was shooting at 800 ISO at the time on a 2x converter with the 90mm.


    Original on Flickr for comparison.
    Cheers, David

    I like the expression on this one, although the lighting is rather bad.

    Re: Photo-a-day

    Theres no banding on the original Tim - but I can see a bit of banding on the Flickr link on my laptop.

    I think I'm probably looking for more Robert - I tend to have enough free time to get to Ullswater very regularly but not enough time to get further afield and I need new locations. Its good though - still enjoying it more than any other 'hobby' I've had.

    Re: Photo-a-day

    Same, slight banding on the right on my screen but I suspect it's just compression.

    As always, an outstanding picture! Saw it's a 15s exposure, do you use any NDs? Ooh and also, do you tweak the colours much on your shots?

    Kushti, I've viewed the image on a variety of monitors and computers (both Mac OS X and Windows 7), on two different ADSL2+ connections, and in two different browsers (Safari and Firefox - I didn't bother with Chrome as it isn't colour-managed). The monitors I've tested on include an NEC MultiSync LCD26WUXi, NEC MultiSync 24WMGX3, Dell U2311H, a Samsung 215TW, a MacBook Air 13in (Late 2010) and a MacBook Pro 15in (Mid 2010) - all are IPS or *VA panels and they're calibrated with a Spyder3 Pro every two weeks.

    I see banding in the water (particularly apparent on the right hand side of the dead tree stump) and below the vignette on all of these machines. I'm not sure if it's relating to JPEG compression, but I've got no fancy plugins installed in the browsers on any of the machines. </just saying>

    Re: Photo-a-day

    I'm intrigued.

    I've got a U2311H and see no banding at all, it is a bit since calibration. I've looked to hard at the image and see nothing. Even on the laptop I can't see it.

    Interesting.

    EDIT: I see quite a few ripples in the water, but I don't see it as banding.

    Re: Photo-a-day

    Looked at the Flickr image on a 27" iMac and there is definitely a trace of banding.

    What do you reckon to the Spyder Tim and why recalibrate every two weeks. I'm thinking of getting one.

    Other question about the 15 second exposure - no ND grad on that occasion as it was before dawn. Some of the later ones that morning were with the B&W110. Next purchase isn't a lens but Lee filters.

    Lastly - I do change the colour on some - depends on the mood of the shot. Others I leave the colour pretty much as is. Sometimes the combination of B&W110 and hitech filters leaves a cast - sometimes leave it, sometimes convert to mono.

    The Spyder is pretty good and it's relatively cheap - I like it because it's fairly simple to use, but I do want to get a ColorMunki at some point as I want to create my own printer profiles. For colour-critical work, it's important to know that your work looks as it will in print - it not only measures the monitor's colours, but also the ambient light which can have an impact on how you perceive colour (think viewing prints under tungsten vs viewing under a daylight lamp - they look quite different).

    Ambient light changes over time if you're mostly reliant on natural light and so can your monitor's accuracy. The liquid crystal array's accuracy can shift over time too, even if you don't touch the controls. It's maybe a little excessive to calibrate so often, but it's better than doing a bunch of work, only to then realise your monitor's not matching what comes out of the printer. I tend not to do many test prints, so in that respect it pays for itself quite quickly in ink/paper savings.

    ffs its a show off your pic in jpeg thread m8, most will have some form of banding but no one wants a 4mb+ high quality file.

    enjoy the thread for what it is
