I had a few issues with the last post which I decided to delete as I was on my way to Jersey.
Thanks to Richard Pegler for pointing out that they looked a bit washed out, which they were. PLEASE if you spot something or wish to recommend an idea etc please feel free. I don't get offended, after all I'm not a professional so welcome genuine feedback.
Intially I thought it was the fact I for the first time I put the images onto my smartphone then whilst waiting at the port done the post via my phone.
However all the images I took since look washed out! I then looked deeper. I lent my laptop out to a friend to edit images. My screen settings had been adjusted and the colour profile on the RAW developing programme had been changed. I also looked at my sensor as that had been cleaned recently but the sensor looked fine.
Hopefully the issue has been resolved but I'm not convinced it didn't help that the only images I've taken so far have been of a pair local Barn Owls in less than favourable light. I'm not happy with the tweaks I've done with 2 of the offending images (any better?)
This one coming over the disused railway gives an idea how dark it was getting.
