To add to your cloud image Ulff, I'm using only a 2013 imac that I've calibrated and I can clearly see the black ring around the cloud. I used to use a Dell U2410 but I didnt like it. Doesnt take a wide gamut display to see exposure levels, just make sure its calibrated properly. I dont think your screen could be so bad that it couldnt be calibrated to show more info. Can I ask what what you used to calibrate it?
Also, one tip for looking at luminance textures is a solar curve. Basically in Photoshop just make a...Show more →
I agree, that a screen shouldn't be very special to display all important exposure levels after calibration. But either that is nevertheless the case with my screen (a 30'' Dell; I can't find a review which says that there's a general problem with the screen) or in my calibration workflow is something wrong. I use an x-rite DTP94b together with Quato iColor on a PC with Windows 7. - Thanks for sharing your methed with the solar curve - a nice addition to just changing the gamma level of an image.
@Jochen, Aaron and Helena (I hope your camera arrives soon!): thanks for having a look at my images! In the meantime i scrolled through many of my images and found very very seldom problems in the shadows. The problem with the black painting in the i-image is something I usually don't do in an image. It was a quick and dirty approach to correct a fault in the original image that Jochen detected and which makes everything even worse. But I'm happy that this happened and that Jochen points me to this extremely important blind spot in my editing work flow!
