    this monitor isnt calibrated and the parts where detail is lost is around 3/3/3 - 7/7/7

    Just wondering if the rest of the scene looks to dark on your screen.

    Looks ok to me, maybe a little gray. There isn't much detail in the top right, but the rest of the photo isn't that dark. I cal'd my monitors on 3/7 :dunno:

    I concur. The top right (the shadows) doesn't have a lot of detail, but other than that it's fine. I did notice the left log looks a little dark and flat. The pile in the middle of the log are lit, but the log doesn't look quite right...

    Was it cloudy that day? I can tell the light was pretty diffused.

    for what it is worth , i took a look at the pix (121K file) in photoshop ...

    the curve is skewed ... the top end (brightest) cuts off around 215 . the bottom end (darkest) is "bunched" . by doing some slight adjustments the picture "popped" . i was able to get some detail in the dark area of the "cliff" (above the end of the right log) without the pix washing or going flat .

    on my monitor the original was a bit dark .

    interesting lighting/feel to the pix ... i like the composition . if it were full color , it would not have the same effect . good shot .
