A technical question. In my butterfly photo, I can see individual scales in some areas on the back of the camera but not in the reduced version I posted. Can you see them in the posted version? Do you think the difference is due more to reduction in size or to the resolution on my poor old screen?

Here's a crop, 600 x 600 px, with no reduction and no editing for brightness, sharpness, or anything else. I can see scales in it, mostly as horizontal rows with little vertical definition.

I often find that at first glance the zoomed version on the back of the camera looks "better" than the unedited image downloaded to the computer. I have wondered whether perhaps the camera-display does some optimizing.

Can you see them in the posted version?

No, but then my screen is an old DELL office model, not dedicated to graphics viewing/processing.

Same here.

BTW: reminds me that the word Lepidoptera originates from the Greek Lepis=scale and pteron=wing (see also Wikipedia (external link))

I cannot see the individual scales in the posted version and I'm looking at it on a high resolution 4K UHD screen.

How did you reduce it?

This is size related. Downsizing an image is like creating more distance. And from a distance our eyes see less fine detail than from up close.

I don't know, but I've found that the camera's histogram can't be trusted (the "summary" or "composite" white one doesn't match the RGB ones) and that white areas may show up as blinkies when in fact they contain data.

How did you reduce it?

Using "Size" in the simple editing program that came with the MacBook.

Yes, the segment of arc . . . I expected that size would make a difference and wondered about the contribution of screen resolution. If I lean close to the screen, without glasses and with the benefit of myopia, I easily see the grid of pixels on a plain white background or anything.

Thanks to all of you for your feedback!

Under the rainbow(s). What a sight that was. It was very close to sunset (21:12 hrs) and it stood there brilliantly for what felt like forever! Taken from my living room window, so not much choice in framing.

This is beautiful. The colors are so awesome, bright on one side and dark on the other. I can almost smell the rain. :-)

Yes, it was like the sky was divided in two differently lighted parts. An amazing sight. And one could smell the rain!
Thanks very much, Rhody.
