I can respect that. I'll leave it as is then.

Please feel free to present your version Duck. It's always interesting to see other takes on subjects... :)

Here is my take, John;

Here is a list of the edits I made;
  • Exposure gradient at bottom to darken lower part of frame.
  • Cloned out half hidden cow.
  • Dodged road back in to brighten it and around the black cow.
  • Spot burned edges of road and bright areas of ground.
  • Added saturation to the vegetation darkened by previous effects.
  • Brightened top of mountain to push it back into the background.

Thanks for letting me play ;)

While I've never been to the bush I wonder if cropping the right tree might give the image more impact.

Thank you for sharing! S-

So true, I often wonder how my images look on other monitors. I know they look different on my laptop.

This is an area I don't like wandering into online with people I don't know. I have highend Nec and Eizo monitors. The Nec I use as representative of browsing so I keep it in sRGB uncalibrated. That gives me an idea of how it can look. My CG277 Eizo is calibrated to 90cd/m2 and native gamut. I edit in this space. It is equal to essentially 100% aRGB. I switch on my Eizo instantly to calibrated sRGB so that I can see how it converts to sRGB for the web. I have colour matched prints from my Epson 7800 and 3880 to the monitors under controlled lighting. My print profiles were made with my Xrite i1Pro2 calibrator.
So, I see what I see, others see what they see on their display. I do know however that at our camera group, when I have seen the equipment people use to get the images and then they bring their images onto my gear for me to print, they normally comment how the colours on my system look different to their own lowend computer/laptop.
