    Yes, our monitors make the final difference. I made that edit on my calibrated iMac at home. On my non-calibrated Windows machines at work the image looks rather different

    My basic point - made many times by others - is that sometimes we get preoccupied with technical issues like dynamic range and resolution and overlook the fundamentals.

    This one from Alstrom Point was a shot in the dark, I did my due diligence on metering and such, but in the end, I had to use my intuition for the final exposure and make a gut call on it.

    Here is something a little different than my usual...

    I set up the 11x14 just in from the Yosemite Park entrance on Hwy 140.

    For historical reference is a 5x7 I took in the early 90s (silver gelatin print).

    I like the first one with the ghost lites. Everything is balanced, with good shadows and highlights. While I like the ghost lights from the car/truck that went by, they seem a bit out of place. The second for me seems hard to focus on with the blurry people. Overall, both have good lighting and development. I like the first one, did I say that? Yep.
