I notice dark and light photos on the forum quite a bit. I assume those pics look fine on the poster's own monitor. They would have a hard time knowing how they appear on other computers. We viewers are pretty tolerant of the ups and downs of exposure, because variation is so common. But it is not ideal. It is worth while for us to take note if our images seem darker or lighter than most, and consider recalibrating our monitors. It is really up to us posters, because usually others won't comment.

Thank you very much for your response Ed. I appreciate the thoughtful input.

=Hannah'sDad;19412324]​I tend to like my images a little darker and that probably has something to do with it. I did recalibrate my monitors and both were within spec. However, I was calibrating at 120 cd / m^2 and now I lowered that to 100. Hopefully, that will drive me to up the brightness as I am editing. When I post more and it still seems dark, please, let me know. As I mentioned, they seem to print fine, but again, that is not much of a test, since the path from Photoshop to my Epson 9900 is fraught with various color and depth conversions along the way.

I will say something if I notice it, Scott. Thank you for your response.

OK, so try this. This is a Red-shouldered Hawk from a while back. Back when my biggest lens was a Canon 500 Mark I. He was in a field just down from our house and stayed there for many years, until they finally cleared it for new homes. Haven't seen him in 2-3 years. Taken in Feb 2013. Thanks for looking.

So for the last few months I have posted a lot of osprey and eagle shots from a fish ladder near where I live in Maine. Tracking the raptors in a dive is challenging, but fun. I thought I would show an un-cropped view of where I have been shooting from lately. The A1's 50mp comes in handy for large crops, that is for sure. The red building in the background is where they control the harvester from during the alewife run, and the wooden trough is also part of that equipment. The second shot is a 50mm view from where I shoot from. I could also shoot from that concrete path, but unfortunately I would be shooting directly into the sun. One of these days I will use the 100-400 and try some shots from there on an overcast day.

Thanks! And, it was with my old lens that I got rid of because I didn't think it was all that sharp!
