I was set up to take a shot of some moored boats, but they were really quite boring; the air was quite thick with humidity and I was at a place generally littered with fishermen but nary a soul moved, a leaf going a flutter, a random cloud to drift by. It was just dead. I sarted to leave and when I turned on heel, I saw this shot.

"All that's left to do is roll up the sidewalks"



Odd goings on. In photoshop, this image is quite perfect on my monitor but between translations in Flickr, it lost about 15-20% of its clarity in color and exposure value. To get it closer to the monitor setting (which by the by has been quite accurately calibrated, is brand new, and matched quite lovely to my Epson printer), I had to do some funky monkey stuff, thusly seen here and even it has lost some of its zeal. Can anyone explain why as I do not seem to see this much variation im shots made in sunlight?

Chris, Try converting it to sRGB first. It's still in Adobe RGB.

Chris

Is this "Street Landscape" or "Landscape Street"?

The kind of thing we can expect from Russ with the new D800?  Wink

I like the picture, bye the way.

I like the darker one better, it turns out. Now, monitors are not all calibrated, so let me explain!

I like it when the night sky is just barely separated from the horizon, when you have to peer to see the line. I like it when the transformers are indistinct in the gloom. This is me, and I think I am well established as a lover of the indistinct and unclear. Your mileage will definitely vary.

Well, this is with revised workspace...I still have some work to do in the reconfigure but I think it is substantially better.

Is the middle-ish street lamp a different spectrum ?

It is and it is substantially brighter than the rest. I suspect it is a new lamp.
