Yup, I'm with you there - I have never posted an image here that hasn't been printed to at least A2 size prior.
The monitor often gives a dissapointing view compared to the print. (in my case anyway - different monitors for laptop that is used for internet use versus postprocessing workstation.)

Cheers,

Are you sure this is shown with the correct colorprofile?

It says sRGB, but it looks extremely dull. The histogram also suggests you could gain much more regarding colors and dynamic range. Just as an example see attached. (Don't blow the left-most tree like in the example, though).

I worked on this before I saw OPGR's response which I find overcooked in every area but wifey chores got in the way of posting it sooner.

My first response was it needed a bit of warmth so I did a warming edit but found somewhat like OPGR's edit, a bit too warm.



So, I took my edit and pasted it over his original, reduced the opacity to 50% and came up with this...warmer but won't frtiz your fingers, yet retaining most of the coolness of the canyon.

I'm right there with Tony. Maybe it is because I love the time I am able to spend in similar areas, and have many times studied the light with a large grey isolating card I sometimes carry. Even a small multi adapt framing card reveals wonderful secrets about that light and its subtle color. The revisions offered above , for me, remove the magical and palpable sense of that place at that moment. I can see where a bit of judicious sculpting might tweak depth a bit in the area right in image but I like it just as presented.

That's the beauty of having been there...everything else just becomes someone else's interpretation, thus their vision. I tend to like warmer than cooler, probably too much. Russ is helping me to understand better the simplicity of less is more.

 helping me to understand...
The beauty is that you are making the effort to see! You did not dismiss this image...you went to work wondering. Just a thought though. These spaces, these places have volume and stories. They surround you, closely or large writ. You can feel the temperature on your back...the color floating there is describing the shape, the volume, the speech and language of that place. Now you may wish to see on the desk before you a pleasurable and warm assembly of colors and that is fine. That is purpose built and as such can be magnified as you chose to do. But this place drew the photographer for just what it is. (The other edit offered above I just don't feel I can comment on with any veracity because I have the sense here and elsewhere that there are calibration issues at play) In your case I see clearly your thinking and strongly sense your willingness to step well out of your close vision to another level entirely and I celebrate that juncture for you. I envy the photographers that see and feel behind themselves, around themselves and manage through careful study or luck to pass that forward to the viewer...not just a pretty group of pixels arranged for pleasure but with a story of place to tell. A studio drop cloth did not unroll behind the photographer here isolating that in front of the lense from the location...the location and its volume came to us beautifully observed and expressed. There is no right or wrong... but the gift of finding oneself in a place that makes us work harder is the beauty of it all....and how fortunate we are to have these opportunities at all!
(an aside...Rob C is doing some wonderful cell phone captures of rust, chips, peels..even they exhibit this sense of volume...it is so much more than color and/or temp...while it is easy to be drawn to the voluptuous nature of his portraits, they too have that sense of more behind/around us in that space)

Anyway...have stayed too long...stay open!

Okay, there is indeed something funky going on with attachment images colorwise. Rob C has mentioned it previously. Investigating now...

Me too. I find the original appealing and believable. Every one of the attempted "improvements" just kills the magic, for me.
