  2. Went over these. Was wondering if any might offer some honest C&C.

    Thank you,

  3. hi Mike, what post processing did you do? In some (esp #1) the colors appear washed out, maybe could stand for some contrast boost?
     
  4. Thanks Chris. Appreciate the time.

    Can you tell me your thoughts on these? Do you see any positive difference? Much appreciated.

  5. the first series, very imperceptible, more so on the non-horse elements. But in the second series, I think the blacks are a deeper. This is on my non-calibrated work monitor...
