Very nice shot, but personal preference leans away from such a high noise level as seen in the green.

Thanks a bunch folks. High noise? Have you got your monitor calibrated properly? I can see High noise in a lot of images if I turn my contrast and brightness up to the max, but when the black and white points are calibrated properly, many photos look quite well to me.
Check out and scroll down to Monitor test patterns, it really made a difference in how I adjusted my images and what most others saw when uploaded.

I will check it out. I see a lot of noise in the green patch on the left. I did give you a 9 regardless sysop.

Maybe I need to recalibrate myself. Smile
I appreciate you mentioning it, cause if I'm not seeing it myself, I'm better off knowing now, than having something I've taken a lot of time to work on being affected by noise. I'll recalibrate and have another look. Thanks Etfon911
Hey I just noticed your last three numbers and mine are only one digit off in our user names. Smile Neat!

Noise = Grain! Not always a problem!

Here's an interesting topic on "Noise" from another site I belong to.

I understand these things. To be noisy or not is often a matter of personal preference. sysop - I am checking out the web site you mentioned. I have been using Adobe Gamma, which has been fine so far, but I may need to do a recheck. Guess you're beyond 911, right? :o)

Grin... I use to run a BBS before the Internet became what it is today, and SYSOP stood for System Operator. I Sysop had always been my user name in the early days of the Internet, but I found as it grew more popular, the username Sysop was harder to get from site to site, so I finally typed a random number 912 behind it, and it stuck Smile
I was working in a combat intelligence section when 911 occurred, and was basically working 24 and 7 for about two weeks following, sleeping at work and gathering info to pass on to higher. I doubt that that experience will ever leave me, but I was really surprised that it didn't happen in the early 80's.

mmm Showing your age sysop... I remember squinting at my 12" amber monitor, waiting for my 300 baud Hayes Modem to connect to some pokey BBS. Great Capture BTW.

Smile
