well i always have to increase saturation/contrast/and brightness to match the original, so if you look at the picture on the site and on my computer, they look the same. but if you open them both on my computer they look different. its so weird
The colors in this... I'm speechless They're so vivid and beautiful, and the fact that you managed to capture them... it's amazing, and the composition is very well balanced. This is so gorgeous, thank you for sharing
Also, I wonder: Do you use any filters to get the colors like that?
i used some, but not much. a few things that i always do is tweak the colors, as i find that cameras can never fully capture what you see in person, so i try to make it as close as possible
also deviantart likes to desaturate and blur my pictures when i upload them, so i have to compensate. sometimes they come out a little too sharp after i fix them. ive been trying to find the right balance
but its rare i ever do anything to a picture that makes it look different from how i actually saw it in person
"cameras can never fully capture what you see in person" I see, I experience the very same thing, and I too do some tweaking
Hmm, that hasn't happened to me. Maybe it's because your photos are so awesome that dA's server would crash if it tried to preserve it in its awesomeness?
"but its rare i ever do anything to a picture that makes it look different from how i actually saw it in person" That makes two us, although I'm no purist when it comes to editing photos, I just consider it a bit different kind of art than photos that you try to keep as close to reality as possible
i asked the helpdesk about this, and they pointed me to a thread that says it could either be a color profile mismatch that is differs between the computer and the site, or we're uploading it in a low quality format. i dont understand either of those because it looks fine on my computer after saving, not just in photoshop
Hmm... I don't know about the issue you've got there, but I do know that this piece has a brilliant, vibrant atmosphere! I really like the colours, although the saturation is possibly... a bit too much, in terms of the trees.
How the reflection has caught the colours is great and the point of view is lovely too.
