Thread: Please help me to evaluate

    Default Please help me to evaluate

    hi guys,
    am new here...
    new to photography.

    I have a picture below, which shows appropriate exposure when I view with my monitor,
    but received feedbacks that the picture is underexposed.

    please help to see if the picture is really underexposed in your monitor?
    so that I may need to calibrate my monitor?



    thanks in advance!

    if you're using PSCS, you can use the Shadow/Highlight to increase the Shadow amount to 25%, leave the Highlight at 0%

    i will say that its abit underexposed deffinately coz its looks abit dark here. yup use PS to increase e levels if u do have 1 it may turn out your photo to be a charm.

    yes it is underexposed. use the histogram, and don't depend on your monitor all the time..

    thanks guys!
    appreciate your help!

    Jopel, I'll try your method and repost again.

    To +evenstar: Hi bro, dunno really how to translate the histogram. Suppose to be a normal bell shape then consider ok?

    this is how your histogram look like, just drag the Highlight slider

    the Shadow/Highlight still apply

    sounds like your screen is too bright.
    should try to calibrate it or readjust.
    take note of your ambient light too

    yeah may need to readjust....check both monitor and the graphics card software...
    some of the settings u need to take note are the contrast, brightness, color temperature and gamma settings

    look nicer now on my monitor (calibrated).

    you can either tune down your monitor brightness level by your judgement, or buy a basic calibration tool which costs about $200-300 to calibrate for you.

    It's not little, it's a fair bit.

    Looks better. Though I cannot understand what you're trying to show in the pic.

    Get an EyeOne or XRite
