    @mass: it's very similar to yours in the sense of contrast/brightness balance. however, hers is more blue/cyan dominant whereas yours is yellow dominant.

    ok there, fixed it.. whatever was wrong with it..

    I would say mine is nothing like travis' photo.. His is way overexposed IMO, and oversaturated in the green/magenta end.. While mine is underexposed still, and more towards the cyan/blue end(as you stated)

    Question: do you folks all calibrate your screens for photo correction work? If so, what utility do you use? I use Adobe's built in color calibration tool that comes with CS, and I redo it twice a year to compensate for screen aging.

    I smell a debate! (or not...)

    My opinions:

    Brie's is the most photorealistic (which makes sense since that's what she was aiming for), Jon's is the most artistic (No idea if that was your intention, but that's how I feel about it. Looks almost antiqued.), mass's is the most vibrant (which seems to be his style - nothing particularly wrong with that).

    I wouldn't say mass's version is overexposed at all. It's very saturated which makes it look very bright, but nothing is blown out or even close to being blown out. And high saturation seems to be what mass likes, so I think he pulled it off well.

    Personally, I'm also a photorealism person. True exposure and, more importantly, true color are what I look for in a "wow" picture. I think both can be extremely difficult to achieve, however, given the circumstances. >.>

    EDIT: I want a Sypder soo bad, but I think it'd be a waste of money on my laptop's screen. I need to buy a monitor that I use for image processing and get a Spyder for that.

    EDITEDIT: I should note that it's a great picture to begin with, Devon. XD That's a lotta prolifera. ;p

    Oh I didnt mean there was anything WRONG with travis' photo.. That is indeed his style.. I was just giving my opinion as well.. If say, I took that photo.. I wouldnt use it or upload it, because to me, that's an unusably overexposed photo. lol. But like I said, I tend to aim for dark, contrasty images, which is prolly obvious..
