p.1 #1 · The Watchman


Spent a few days in Zion and Bryce. It felt great heading out somewhere after almost a year. The conditions in Bryce were much better (snow, rain, hail, thunder, fog, wind...) vs Zion (some clouds, mid 70s..clear days mostly). I spent 2 days shooting the watchman at sunset, this was my first time there so i experimented with some different glass.

5d III 45 TSE
i think this one was 24 shots.
Lots of detail in this one, what you don't see on the web version is the tiny black bird with red marking sitting on the rock towards the bottom of the frame.

Color management may be iffy. in PS it looks great, print looks great. On the uncalibrated monitor it looks good, however on the dell U3011 and NEC 3090 the reds and greens are a tiny bit hot.

edit 2: Toned down the greens for web. Remove most of the CA (thanks Jim)

Hey Sunny,

What a very cool view here. Love the vibrant colors. The gold/magenta sky is super sweet. You got a really nice shot!

Great shot Sunny!

Awesome coloring! It looks more like a painting to me, but I know it's real.

24 shots? It looks great, but as you pointed out, the greens look way too green here (and I don't have either of those monitors )

Very nice, and you choose a good time, I was there a few weeks back and the leaves were just starting to show. Love the color and I know how vibrant these greens can be in spring. This is also a great sunrise location.

Sunny, what do you mean by 24 shots? Exposure, or focus stacking?

Sweet shot Sunny. I can imagine the details you can see on the monitor. On my office uncalibareted monitor, the reds and greens are over saturated but I will check that when I go home.
Color management is a huge issue for me. I have images that look great on my 27" dell caliberated monitor but they look really over saturated on IE.

Hey Sunny,

This is looking really sweet now. It looks like you have taken care of the few little details. The greens look fine on my end.

That's one of the better shots from there that I have seen. Icons are icons for a reason, what a beautiful spot.

Very good shot. Seems a little (barely) oversaturated to me but if it prints out nicely, that's OK.

Mind sharing a 100% crop section of that 24 frame stitch?

I hope you are looking for constructive critique, because I have been there many times and it has never looked like this ( on my Eizo CG241 calibrated monitor)The reds and green are way oversaturated and un natural . It looks like a HDR that never got back to PS for finishing. Many people think you just drop a bunch of images into a HDR program and you are done , but the truth is you have only just begun .HDR is a very useful tool ,but used incorrectly it give HDR a bad name . Sorry to be so brutally honest , but if you post em you have to be open to all comments

It doesn't look like a HDR but you're right: green and red are on the hot side on my NEC panel.
I like it though.

Love it - awesome comp and wow, that's gotta be a high res shot! Also, the greens and reds are too saturated on my calibrated cinema display.

However - I've had this exact problem myself. I've had images that look just fine in PS, but once converted to sRGB and displayed in a browser it looks overcooked. In fact, I pulled your image off the site and put it in PS just to see - sure enough, the colors aren't as hot as what I see in my web browsers (Chrome & FF). It's amazingly frustrating (at least to me) when this happens, so I feel your color calibration pain...

Nice composition, but over-saturated, at least for me on the web here.
