[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A nuthatch at Bolam Lake, taken in poor light with ISO800 @ 1/320th sec. The sun was casting strong light patches but overall the lighting was very weak hence the higher ISO.

This is taken as a post processing test shot to check my new monitor.

Can you all please comment on how this looks to you as I don't have a monitor calibration device and would appreciate some feedback on how it appears on your monitors.

Many thanks

Hi Mark,
on my calibrated monitor I see no fault in the colors and contrasts and shades of your nice Nuthatch. The background to the right appears all grey or white, to the left it has a brownish-greenish tinge. Is the Nuthatch hiding some nuts in the moss?
What you can do to gain confidence in your own screen is to inspect a human portrait taken in the shade and without a flash and see whether it corresponds on screen with reality (IF the camera registers reality that is...). Even if all concurs, it will be only your reality you see since every eye sees the world slightly differently ... Complicated but marvellous subject, photography.
Best regards
