Sunset in the park

Just some quick pictures from the sunset in our neighborhood park. This is the color the sky was that evening. I barely touched the images in Lightroom apart from the default camera standard profile I use.

Dead tree

These are images from a dead tree that I took on a little hike with the family. Just experimenting with shapes and negative space.

Want to see some crazy colors

Check out this gallery of images from Holi, the Indian festival of color. Be sure to use a color managed browser on this as the images are a mix of sRGB and adobeRGB.

A new day! Firefox color manages by default

Firefix is now enabling icc support by default in their new beta! See this page. This is great news

The default settings only enable color correction for tagged images, just like Safari does. You can enable full color management in a similar way as before. There is now a "gfx.color_management.mode" variable in the about:config box that you set to 1 in order to also manage untagged images and CSS colors as if they are sRGB. This is very helpful for folks with wide gamut displays. IE as always is far behind in this field.

To be complete: Here is a link showing how to enable color management in the current Firefox release. Doing this indeed color manages even untagged images. A very important feature.

Renewable energy gallery

I have said before that I love the galleries at the frame. This one is no exception. But funnily this is one gallery where my two worlds meet. They focus on Renewables in Colorado and naturally that implies lots of pictures from NREL. I know all the folks in the images! Check them out. Some interesting images for sure.
