Here are a couple of black and whites from the same trip.

Do those black and whites look really dark to you folks? For some reason they are a lot darker when viewed her on MP. They look fine when viewed elsewhere. JML

I think the B&Ws look fine, still has plenty of contrast. Love the pics! Robert Buswold

Every hosting site will use a different compression algorithm to reduce file size. Unfortunately, when it comes to digital photography, that reduction in file size results in a corresponding loss of color information.

Alternatively, MP may not perform any compression, but instead give the browser instructions for handling image files that are different than the browser defaults.

A third option is that MP performs no compression and gives no instructions but other sites give the browser handling instructions which would account for differences in appearance across various sites.

Long story short: there are too many variables to guess at. Color theory is a complicated, complicated game.

On a different note... great images. I love the saturation. He sure is the master painter. Lovely.

I think its interesting how different the images are from digital to film. You can really see it by comparing the two North Lake shots. The digital one seems way more washed out that than the slide one (either is still way better than I could pull off), but there's not that much difference between compositions or sky intensity to justify that difference. Maybe there's an infrared sensitivity difference between the two.

I think its clear though: whatever your slide film is, its clearly superior for color vibrancy.

I don't use Photoshop so I easily could have increased the saturation in the digital ones. For that matter, I probably could have increased the saturation in-camera before taking the shot. Don't know anything about digital though...still a lot to learn.

The film is Fuji Velvia 100 and that is a straight scan...exactly as the slide appears.

How is this? I tried to make the digital version look like the film version.

Wow, great photos. Are you a professional photographer? My favorite landscape photos are ones with reflections like the one above this post. So cool, thanks for sharing. Fred Cornwallace
