Re: Around Ladybower

Alf,
These are RAW files processed with LR6. When you say “not a fan of the colour palette” please can you be more specific? Do you think they lack saturation or contrast or what? My personal preference is for a ‘natural’ look.

I was disappointed that the autumn foliage colours weren’t more advanced when I did this walk - but as yet we haven’t had any really cold nights in this region.

Re: Around Ladybower

Nice shots Chris, makes me wish I'd gone yesterday but didn't think about it till too late and I'd got jobs to do
It's a lovely area that I've not been to since the Celebration Lancaster and Spitfire fly over a few years ago. I think what you've got colour wise is likely to be pretty faithful as the Autumn colours round here don't seem as vivid as they have been in past years either. Photoshop excepted of course

Is the camera calibration set to one of the camera settings like camera muted or camera natural or Adobe standard
Mine will reset to Adobe standard and I find the colours much less pleasing.

Nice set of shots. The colours look quite natural to me - but that could be the way my monitor is set up.

Alf,
These are processed with the Adobe Standard profile.
I've just had a play with changing the profile both Camera natural and camera muted and comparing the output to the Adobe standard, and I find that the grass greens are oversaturated for my taste. An interesting experiment nonethe less.

That explains why I think they could be much better but that's up to you.

Colours look right to me for the Peak District. I liked the trees shot and the bridge. Though they all have merit, IMV.

Some magnificent views over the Derwent Valley, Chris. Now I see how, why and from where Tasmania's Derwent Valley took its name.

Frankly I am struggling to understand why anyone should think he would wish to change a great set of photos by using Photoshop or whatever and turn them into something that doesn't portray the colours and natural look of the scenes visible on the day. Everyone is of course entitled to hold their own opinions and express them.

You are fankly struggling because you missunderstand the debate.

The Adobe colour space is one that belongs to Adobe my suggestion is that we a olympus users should the Olympus colour spaces prests that are designed for our cameras. These presets are what are used when set to jpeg.
This is one of the settings you make on your camera but can adjust in RAW files just like WB.
What Chris has used is not a natural looking colour space for Olympus cameras in my experience and moastly looks awful to me.

Thanks Mark,
Derwent is quite a common name for rivers in the UK. There are river Derwents (not linked) in:- Cumbria, County Durham, Yorkshire, as well as the one in Derbyshire which flows through Ladybower reservoir. I expect that there are some more that I am unaware of. The name is said to be Celtic in origin meaning: oak wooded valley, or river, or similar.

Your Tasmanian version looks more dynamic than any of our’s
