Hi!

I've just published a new gallery with over 30 pictures I took at the Florida Keys this summer.

You can have a look at them at the following website:
Photography of the Florida Keys (Martijn Smeets Fotografie)

Please tell me what you think!

Not really to my photographic tastes, so I don't have much to say about the images, but I will pass this on: do these photos really need to open in another window? I find it quite annoying. Going to a new photo site, I expect to go through tens if not hundreds of images, so opening and closing windows every time is cumbersome.

Having been at well, pretty much all of those locations several times, I like the way you presented most of them.  Of course some look like postcards, but that is VERY hard to avoid sometimes, especially there!  I don't mind the popup window, but it would be a lot more convenient to have a navigation arrow once it's enlarged.

Oh - and not one pic of a rooster??

Haha! Yeah, you're not the first complaining on the lack of roosters.  Fact is, we have so many roosters here in The Netherlands, that I hardly notice them. And if I do notice them, I don't find them very interesting.

The postcard-problem is indeed a hard one to avoid at the Keys! I knew I was shooting 'postcards' at the time, but when driving on the Keys I actually felt like being part of a postcard. O well..

The popup has been changed now. It's now possible to move from one enlarged view to the other, without going back to the page underneath.

Martijn, they are nice photos, but mostly because they are of a nice place. Everybody looking at them will be using a different monitor which means all different color balances. On my MAC, the colors are more bright and highly saturated than anything in the real world.  Is this because we all have different equipment, perhaps because the colors are optimized for say a PC laptop display, or because (and I cannot say) you may have applied a great deal of increase to the color saturation with software?

In any case, I find that putting my work on the net forces me to look at the photos as a "member of the public" and the discipline is good for my craft.  See www.pbase.com/goodlistener for examples, including some shots of Miami, FL with a surpisingly good point & shoot Kodak.

The images are exported with the sRGB color profile, which is the best ICC profile for publishing pictures on the Internet, as most visitors have this profile installed as their monitor profile.
However, further monitor and display settings and the characteristics of certain displays could make the pictures look more or less saturated and more or less bright and contrasted.

There's not much to do about this. I must include that I do use a lot of 'pushing' on the contrast and saturation, because that's just my style of photography.

Hi

A great set of photos, so much better than anything I could produce (but that isnt hard   ).  But I did notice the whites were blown on a couple, the cat (which may have been deliberate) and the pipeline particularly.

But still a lovely set
