Salut Andr,

Merci pour la d嶰ouverte, je ne connaissais pas le ZCC.
L'彋oile de Sh廨iff me plait beaucoup.
C'est amusant, ta photo me fait penser un tableau c幨嶵re repr廥entant un vieux couple de fermiers rigoristes am廨icains; et pourtant le tableau 彋ait en format paysage et non vertical. C'est sans doute la posture qui me fait faire le lien entre les 2.
Joli boulot sur le cadrage: droite le baton et gauche les ombres qui s'彋irent; les 2 encadrent bien le couple.
Tout au plus on peut regretter l'mombre dure sous la casquette de l'homme, mais d'un autre c矌 蓷 traduit l'ambiance du soleil fort qui est la norme par l-bas. Et un l嶲er coup de flash en fill-in (pas dispo sur ton appareil) aurait sans doute cass l'ambiance et l'廦uilibre de l'嶰lairage.

Default To delpeoples: Colours.........

Ciao cara Lisa,

Thank you yet again for your kind remarks about this one.

Hee, hee, I saw the link which Silvio sent to me (the one to a Facebook page which had his "top" picture of trees with the sun blazing through the branches) but I couldn't quite understand what he meant by that or why he sent me that link. Also, using the Google translating tool, I put in "caro cari" and it came up with "expensive caries" which seemed rather odd!

Anyway, Lisa, I agree entirely that the colours here are a bit queer. The picture looked reasonable when I edited it in Photoshop Elements but after I had uploaded it I thought it has a distinctly pinkish look to it on the TE website - quite different to what it looked like after I had finished editing it. I also remember that both yourself and Craig had had experiences of a pinkish appearance in pictures you had uploaded some time ago.

There's a competition at the camera club for colour prints and the hand-in day is tomorrow so I've ben trying to print out some pictures for that. I don't know how much printing you do but I am really hopeless at it. The lady who does all the super Photoshop tutorials at the club gave us a talk but it was just so very complicated and I couldn't quite follow it. All about editing in sRGB but printing in Adobe RGB. My printer is a cheap (60) Canon multifunction job and others use top of the range ones that cost five or six hundred quid. And Elements doesn't seem to have all the "colour proofing" tools (whatever they are) for printing. So I'm a bit lost. Perhaps I won't bother putting in any prints this time and just settle for doing the "digital"" competitions.

The other thing which you say is that different computers and monitors give different appearances. A friend of my daughter was clearing out her stuff and gave me a thing called a "Spyder 3 Elite" which is a device for calibrating your monitor. Again, that's hopelessly complicated (for me at least) and I found that it made my monitor go very dark and the colours looked even queerer than they did before I used it. Ho, hum. Have you any experience of this sort of thing?

Perhaps I should just give up photography and take up basket weaving or something like that?

Un abbraccio,
