@Dave Mann: Thanks for confirming your inability to appreciate the effort required to produce quality wildlife pikkies. Perhaps you should stick to something you know about – Dave Mann’s autobiography of a moron.
Just a technical question – in your browser, do you see any ‘noise’ near the bottom of the green gradient of the background? I see the noise in Chrome, but not in Opera. I’ve been having issues with uploading pics to Facebook and some of the colors look noisy, with ‘burned’ red or green in some areas. It turns out that some browsers are not color managed properly.
I know that colours are much better on my calibrated monitor at home, rather than the cheaper work monitor I use here. I didn’t realise the browser might make a difference (thanks). I have noticed that Facebook does a lot of compression and loses colour fidelity, so that won’t always be the browser’s fault.
My main preference for viewing pics though, is a good print on some high quality paper (metallic etc) – it has a lot more impact that way. In fact, if people do have some nice pics of their own hiding away in the depths of a hard drive somewhere, I can recommend getting a good print made (not necessarily from a kiosk in a shop).
