I find they look a lot better if using Flickr rather than the forum hosting the photo;-)a

Are you referring to condensation on the lens? If so, you need to keep the front element warm. In astrophotography it's common to use heat tape or chemical hand warmers secured to the lens.

Stay away from humidity or water.

Sorry.
I meant the stuff you can see in the air as you look into the distance.
It gives a milky appearance to landscape shots.

Sometimes a circular polarizer can help. Sometimes the dehaze tool in Lightroom CC helps. I've seen people work wonders in LR and Photoshop, but those techniques are beyond my skill level.

Does anybody else find their pictures look great at home but are lacklustre when uploaded to the net?

Yes. I notice a dramatic difference between what appears on the forum v. how the same image appears on Flickr.

I thoroughly enjoy this forum and I am extremely grateful for it, but anytime I see an image that I like and there is a Flickr link, I'll check it out on Flickr and see a substantial image quality improvement.

I hope that this is not "off topic", but I wonder if anyone out there can explain the phenomenon, or if there is a work-around.
(I have been wondering for a long time)

I was wondering if it was because i am a mac owner and the colour space was different.

I said that like I know what I'm talking about.:lol:

It's usually worse closer to the ground, so raising your viewpoint (even by a few feet) can help because you end up shooting through less of it.

I have a hosting account on GoDaddy. I put my photos there, and then use "img" tags to show them here. I don't see any difference between what I see here and what I see natively on my computer. I do not upload photos to the forum's image gallery. I don't know if that would matter.

Install Canon's picture style CLEAR, take a photo and compare. That picture style is very powerful, but a small modification of the image in that direction doesn't look that much as on overdose. It gives you an idea of what can be done in post processing, though.

Hi.

I would offer this cropped image for comparison.
Taken with 1DX Mk II and a EF300mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens, on Flickr it looks sharp to me.
In the forum, not so much.
(The Single Focus Point used was on its eye)

I admit that I like sharp images.
There, I said it.

The image was simply made by using Canon's DPP and making a jpeg from a RAW file.
(I am not that "into" processing so that is all I can immediately offer)

I also wonder if other owners feel the colors are the same.
To my eye they are, but sometimes I struggle with this.

If it matters, I also use a Mac computer and Mac display.

If this post is off-topic I apologize, but this is a valuable camera body and it would be great to be able to see what they are producing for results.

Lastly, I have noticed this effect with images from other owners, that on Flickr, images appear sharper than in a thread.

QUOTED IMAGE

I like sharp images, too. :-)

Flickr creates a number of image sizes from the photo that you upload. It looks like the forum here is using the 1024 size. On Flickr, you have the capability of zooming in to the full 2547x1698 image that you uploaded. I compared the 1024 image on Flickr to the image shown here on the forum. A screenshot of the comparison shows that the Flickr image at that size is identical to the forum image. As would be expected, the Flickr image does become sharper when you look at larger image sizes.

Hope this helps.

To be honest, on my Mac, the pictures look more than acceptably sharp.
I posted a picture of a Hurcules which is tack sharp viewed from my local drive but looks like a disaster on the forum.

Here's a test. The first image below was uploaded to the forum as a full-size jpg (5026x3351). The forum software downsized it to fit in a 1280x1280 box. The second image was reduced to 1280 by Lightroom and then uploaded to the forum. I assume that the forum did not change it. The third image is the 1280 image as created by Lightroom, but it's hosted on GoDaddy. I think the first image is slightly softer than the other two. I don't see any difference between the last two. Your thoughts?
