    First chace I had in ages to get out and do something, and now I got the hang of the R1C1 too!







    There are some more HERE too:) 

  2. I like your series of photos. I thought they looked a bit dark so I checked the histograms. All but the first fly shot are underexposed. They brightened up quite nicely in post processing.

    That's probably the way I processed them, on my screens they look ok, but they don't seem to calibrate. As soon as I can get my hands on a DVI -> VGA adapter I can get my big CRT up and running again. That said, they look ok to me on my work screen as well.

    Yours is calibrated? Perhaps you could zap up a version for me to see as a comparison? It could just be that I lean toward making them to dark anyway :)

    My screen isn't calibrated however I agree with Larry, in general these look far too dark.

    The actual images look promising however, once your CRT is up and running I look forward to seeing what you can do.
  5. Just so people don't think I'm unresponsive, I adjusted one picture and sent it directly to Craig.

    I should have some revised images, however I would say that Larry's adjusted image was better, but not wildy brighter, so depending on what context 'far to dark' was in, you may or may not need to calibrate as well LOL

    But I'll reserve proper judgement till you folks check out the re-processed shots :)

    I agree, next time bump the iso a bit!

  8. I would agree, anything to lighten up the pics a bit.

    I'm noise paranoid BTW LOL i think the processing scope is easily within range without uping the camera ISO. Well I have time tonight to 're-process' them.
