Most members use sRGB jpgs. Try whatever you have & see if it works.

Worth noting the last time I looked into this most browsers under windows ignored the colour space info even if included in the file, so sRGB is the safest colour space to use for the web even if you use something else in your post processing workflow.

I believe this is a Least Sandpiper. He was one of a flock of about 25, feeding in the retreating floodwaters from Hurricane Harvey. He worked his way to within about 25' of my SUV. Even so, these are about 50% crops.

He looks large in theses images, but he was only about 6" long.

Here's a couple more from the same session, both of which I like. I slowed the shutter speed down to 1/50 for the portraits, as I knew I would crop them down and wanted the lowest ISO I could get away with for top quality.

I was at Slimbridge Wetlands a few days ago. Where I walked into one of the hides there (Martin Smith Hide).
There on one of the posts in front of the hide on one of the sticks/posts was this beautiful female kingfisher no more than 15 metres from me.

I slowly and quietly opened the best positioned drop down window only to find my lens hood would not go through the 5 inch hole. All the windows were of the same small size. Even taking my lens hood off I could still not stick the lens out the window.

With all the commotion and time wasting the Kingfisher flew off. I had lost my chance.

I thought there is no point staying in this hide so I put the hood back on the lens and got my gear ready to leave when I noticed that the kingfisher returned to the same stick.

Despite the partially top and bottom views being cut-off I took several photo's although I was finding it hard to focus.....Surprisingly when I looked at the photo's they were very good and there was no signs of obstructions.

So when there is an opportunity to take the shot what ever the obstacle do not hesitate. I hope you like my photo.
Paul.
