Lance - thanks for your comments.

Always fun to see how we all see things differently.

Just want to make sure you know - - in none of these photos are the highlight blown.


Technically, probably not, and I see this with my images, the post process software says that it isn't blown, but it looks blown on screen.

They were all shot in light Golden Light & actually should reflect that to a certain degree.

I agree! that's part of the appeal of "Golden Light".

Thanks

Lil

Lance - you're right - the whites may look blown, but that can easily have to do with a mis-calibrated monitor as well. Mine passes the calibration criteria with flying colors.

Thanks Lil. Quick ?, I've been using the gray point instead of finding the black and white point. Do you think it's any different?

Which software are you using

Lil,

I am using CS6. White/Black points does give a bit different result then what I was using.
I think you right, I am gonna start using white/black points. Maybe it's more accurate if I use all three points?? ...

This is the tutorial I used for the gray point.

I'll check it out Quang,

white & black points tell the software what's the darkest & lightest in the frame. After all - - the camera & software see it all in grays.... So we need to tell them

Lil:

To elaborate on my original post.....First, the threes...I was joking. Sorry you did not pick up on that. Second, I usually don't like to critique. If most is right about a particular shot, it is hard for me to tell you what is best when the variations are slight. IMO, the subtleties of PP most of the time is the authors preference.

I would choose #1, 7 and 9 of your variations. Your silhouette is excellent.

Thanks Ted,

Jokes can be hard to "get" online. Like I wrote in the PM - I think I now have a total of 3 people in the forum I hide from. I don't get them so better not read what they write....

This wasn't much for critique - - more a discussion/communication/thinking out loud thing

Thanks for your picks & I so appreciate you like the silhouette
