I believed you missed the point, good sir. I give up on you, there is just not changing the fact that you will not take anything negative we say about the pics as being true. Simple as that. Sure art is subjective, blah blah blah, but bad PP is what is at question.
I have also come to realize that you yourself must have not read the article on color calibration, why? Because BOTH of my calibrated monitors show a terribly photoshoped picture, however, my crappy work screen which is wayyyy too blue and is underexposed by a long shot begins to show more darks where the wheels actually dont float off the background.
Printed media will look different, but only slightly, if you print source is printing the images that look acceptable from image 3 i recommend you find yourself a better print shop, hell, even walmart will do better. Any image i print matches what i see on the screen within 90%, depending on how much i want to spend on the particular screen. What the hell else would be a point to color calibration? I dont "guess" when editing pics, i know how they will look printed. Period.
im out, have a good one.
oh and one more thing, giving an automated message to every other thread that comes through here doesn't "save" the thread, or make someone feel welcome, if i dont have good constructive CC to give to some one i simply dont mention something that gives them no input on how to improve at all, ie: "Good light on SOME of them" .
sorry, but its easy to get fed up with arrogance and ignorance.
