    Big Dreams

    the photo of the guy was taken by my friend Pete Prodoehl. I just happened to have a photo of a theatre (that I took on a whim! I held the camera upside down and backward over my shoulder and clicked. My friend's husband asked me, "what are you going to use that for?" and I didn't know. But now I'm glad I did!) This combines the two.

    note to self: MUST calibrate monitors on all computers! I can barely see the image on this laptop, it's so dark.

    It is very dark on my calibrated monitor, also. I saved it, lightened it a little and liked it much better. I could then see the dream and the dreamer. Very nice. - TF

    TF, could you please re-post your lightened version here? Thanks!

    That's really cool.

    Honestly, I'm not sure which I prefer but if the second one was more of your intention then we'll go with that. Part of the fun of sharing photos via the web...

    Re: Big Dreams

    Fascinating!

    When I view this on the computer I created it on, the "darker" one is (obviously) the look I intended. The lightened one is way too bright and the highlights are jarring.

    But when I view it on my laptop, I can barely see the darker one, and the brighter one comes closer to my intentions.

    What's fascinating is that I can tell how each of your monitors is calibrated! Well, not the exact settings, but I can see who's got computers set like my upstairs one, and who's viewing on monitors like my downstairs one.

    Next step: actually calibrate both monitors. Post my results here.

    Re: Big Dreams

    I did this little test some time ago when most could not see a photo of mine. The brightness across the forum varies terribly. I gave up on posting photos that depend on an exact brightness.

    Thanks!! According to that test, those with calibrated monitors responded the same as I would, here at my upstairs desktop computer.

    Good to know!
