p.1 #1 · Baiting a chipmunk


I had to get a new computer so I ended up with a new monitor to go with it.
Therefore I am not quite confident yet that I've set up the monitor colours right.

This was shot with 40D + 15 FE.
To me the chipmunk looks of right colour but the hand skin seems too pink a bit, although some of it might be explained by the reflection off a red brick wall.

Please tell me how do you see those colours.

Edit: All feedback required has been received, thank you.

Peter,

Your description fits what I see on my monitor, which is not calibrated, so it probably doesn't help much!

Looks to me just like you described it. I would try it like that as I think it's good to go...

Peter, the hand does look unusually pink, so if you know that the person's hand is not really very red...?
What do you use to calibrate your system?

Damn that little guy is cute!

Thank you, gents, that gives me a bit of reassurance because this conversion to my new computing gears has been nothing but a rocky road.

Jess, I just used a Windows display setup routine as well as the instructions that came with the monitor. Basically, that meant eyeballing colours while moving some RGB sliders which can be treacherous.

it does look a bit pink, but maybe his had was raw from cold? you maybe need a different camera profile though
(calibrated with i1 Display Pro, NEC PA 241W)

the saturation is probably a touch higher than realistic and that may make it look pinker as well

OK, that's what I see as well, so it looks like I might be in the right ballpark here, at least with the warmer colours.

Peter, Unless that is a heavy Canadian beer drinker with many miles under his belt, the skin is a tad red. The whole image looks a smidgen over saturated or maybe it is a color cast effect (looking at the munk's inside left leg).

That's a calibrator with a colour sensor, right ?

Yes...You need to do something, that color sucks...the Windows display setup is not the way to go...

I'd be pink too if a rodent was eating my nuts.

The hand looks very pink on my monitor and the brick wall looks over saturated. The chippie looks about right.

In Firefox, the hand looks slightly pink and the wall is over-saturated. But in Photoshop, the whole image looks very over-saturated. Applying about -30 on saturation restored the whole image to what I would consider normal. I'm surprised that you posted this as a .gif with no color profile and that Firefox mellowed it out somehow.

The hand definitely looks pink and well manicured,the brick wall looks like it's crossing into another color in the spectrum,and the happy chipmunk looks quite colorful ...so I 'd say over saturated.

I asked the wife to verify the colors,because I'm red/green colorblind with some reds and greens when they're side by side.

I agree, pink.

I'm also greatly relieved to not see you putting the chipmunk on a big hook...

That's how I'd describe what I see, but this is no way to calibrate a monitor! I still use a "cheap" Spyder 3 Elite, and am still happy with it, but the 4 sounds like an improvement. A good colorimeter and calibration software system will do a better job than eyeballing things. Then you can use your sensitive eyes to adjust images and know that others will see much the same thing if they've calibrated their own equipment. Indispensable if you print!
