Thanks! I think I took that after the submission cutoff. Maybe the next one! Those are from a set I call "Bored Waiting for a Late HVAC Repairman".

^looks like someone's having fun with a macro lens.

rodi: was the flash on camera in the first pic? And did you have a ND filter on the second pic?

Took these a few months ago using my crappy-arse $200 Canon. The Wilson shoots far better than the camera or the camera operator do.

BTW, anyone wanna share with me why my images look like such junk?

I feel like they look so nice on my new iMac in PS and LR but as soon as I save and upload them they take a royal dump in the quality dept (specifically the last two posted above. That Pano shot was so bright and vibrant before and now it looks dull and muddy/dark).

Part of me thought, maybe its just ImageShacks hosting or its the monitor on my Macbook but everything above me looks stunning so that can't be it and most people have it hosted through Imageshack too.

What is your guys process for saving in PS to get such high quality output. I always thought by going to save for web and devices was the best option so school me if I'm wrong.

Maybe you need to recalibrate your monitor? Iono.

Are you exporting in sRGB color space? Most seem to recommend that but you will still lose some fidelity compared to what you are seeing. Post up your settings. I've had a bitch of a time with this myself, between what to use for printing v web.

Pretty good demonstration of this and explanation of different common color spaces and web browsers:

BTW, love the shot of lower Wacker. Was back there myself for the holidays and seemed like the snow offered the opportunity for a lot of cool images.

my output is always sRGB because thats what it converts to when you use "Save for Web and Devices" save function.
