I think I mentioned this before, but I bought all that calibration stuff and went through the motions on my MacPro, and MacBook Pro. I ended up liking the Adobe sRGB profile better. I know there are repeatability issues if you are printing your own images, so that might change things. I just set everything back to sRGB and it's been that way since.

I'd say your settings are especially good on contrast because you have some very tender areas there that could blow out in the blink of an eye, and everything looks very nice.

Now Bob, that's a guy to emulate! Everyone should have at least an hour of 51 time in their logbook! 94, hmmm, that'd give me 30 years and a few months left to hone my skills, I'd take that if You're listening Lord.......

There's a possibility that I'll have a BBJ behind us at Alliance this Fall as well. Anyone interested in shooting something on a larger scale?

Yesterday afternoon I rolled the Cub out and put an hour on it. The air was pleasantly stable and temps were comfortable. Nine hot air balloons were in the process of launching just off to the east of KTKI. I flew Glenn's and my low level route around the lake. The water was like a mirror. The day was made for a Cub, low and slow taking it all in. What a privilege and a blessing it is to be able to lift off and lose one's self in the wonder of flight.

Hey, need a favor...

I swapped out my old SpyderPro 2 for a ColorMunki "Display" today and the Munki took my apparent brightness way, way down when it did its thing.

Anything about this shot look wonky? First edit with the new monitor profile...
Per the histogram in LR, nothing is blown or crushed and the whites are a few degrees warmer than dead neutral because it was early morning.


Nothing wonky to my eye on either the 30" Cinema HD or the new, 27" iMac: gorgeous, Jay. Gotta love Mother Nature's high-alpha boundary layer control solution.

For reasons that are not clear to me, the iMac's screen is bluer and brighter than the 30" Cinema, and that's after I used Apple's manual calibration functions on both. Like Jim, I ended up reverting to the iMac's native calibration. I don't own any 3rd-part calibration gear; anybody want to recommend something?

I guess I can give the X-Rite ColorMunki Display an opposable thumb up given that the feedback here is solid!

Got mine from NewEgg and it came bundled with the pocket-sized Color Checker!

Goofy looking? I've always thought the Avanti looks great though, granted, it's not your grandmother's executive twin turboprop.

But from the ground it sounds like a demented chainsaw on nitromethane. And you can quote me on that.



Always thought they were way cool...
Funny Italian styling usually means beautiful form & flowing lines,...guess it needs the canard but it looks like an afterthought n spoils the lines....

Whats with the sound

I can wish huh Zim, but no wasn't me, looks like Greg. I wasn't able to be up at Alliance with the crew. The reasons for that are being dealt with as we speak though

That said, I am making sure I get up there for '13

Nice, you know you have one of the best in the country right there is AZ by you. http://www.ejphoto.com/
He does mostly nature, but runs a duck workshop and is a fantastic avian photographer also.

Just checking in folks, it's been awhile since I've had anything to contribute. As always y thanks to each of you for the outstanding images shared in this thread.

My family and I spent sometime yesterday afternoon with an old friend, and while I don't have images to share yet I will in the future. This fellow is one of the true gentlemen of aviation, he is the founding president of both the Abbotsford Flying Club and the Abbotsford International Airshow. What an amazing experience to sit in his home and listen to his recollections and stories of the 50+ years these organizations have been around.

And to top the afternoon off, he let us have a look at some of the documents he's collected over the years. He has a collection of programs from each of the years of the Abbotsford airshow, what a great look into the history of our community. Each of these programs is a reflection of what was important and happening in the community each year.

And then there was the look at his personal log books, spanning an amazing array of aircraft flown. He first flew as a part of the Dutch Airforce in Tigermoths, Harvards, Oxfords, Spitfires, and the Meteor. His log book then goes onto reflect his time as a flight instructor in Canada, and a bunch of his students are now well recognized aviators in their own right. And then there's a bunch of time flying the Hercules for Pacific Western Airlines. And I think I saw early 737 and L-188 time.

And speaking of holding history in your hands, it seemed an amazing privledge to hold and leaf through his pristine copy of the 1947 version of the Spitfire pilots manual.

Folks, when you have the opportunity to spend time with these folks who've come before us, take it! You'll never regret learning from the experience of these people. They have so much to offer, of we're just willing to listen.

My dear Mark, our entire family would like to show you how much we regret the loss of both your uncle and Kelsey in such a short span of time. Not a whole lot to say other than "we're sorry", but we know that soon the pain will mellow, and you'll be left with a lifetime of memories to cherish.

Edit: Since I hit TOP with this post, I'll join the full-circlers with an old, but rather favorite, shot:

After a lot of reading about how the older stuff has trouble dealing with the newer-tech displays, I ended up with an i1 Display from X-Rite. Can't for the life of me remember all the stuff I read, but I'm happy with how it performs and how it calibrated my dual Asus 24" ProArts.

That's great performing aircraft, but I'd have to look the other way until I boarded it.


Mmm, we have different appreciations of it then. The Piaggio is the only airplane so far that's made Daniela stop cold on a ramp and say, "Honey, what does one of those cost, and can we get one?"

I love its looks too, and really appreciate the three-lifting-surface design for its aerodynamic efficiency and elegance. 400 knots in a turboprop is nothing to sneeze at, either. The downsides are a $6.5M price, a very narrow front office due to the aforementioned drag profile, and the "demented chainsaw on nitromethane" sound. Most people love the looks of an Avanti... I don't know anyone who likes the sound.

No doubt the Avanti is an interesting and unique looking aircraft. But based on my limited (one example) I was amazed at how much the pilot/owner could actually sound like his aircraft. Kind of put me off.

I've been on hiatus far to long from this thread! Great images and dialogue.



I struggled to capture an image that does this justice, but here it is.
