The Alexander Henry #2 | May 26, 2008

Does absence make the heart grow fonder? I think it does. I've been away from photo taking, photo blogging, and anything photo related for a while. I've worked, went away to Europe for nearly 3 weeks, acquired a new computer (a Dell XPS M1330) and monitor (a Samsung 245T), and we're now starting to look at purchasing our first home of our own in Toronto (which isn't an easy task given the fiercely competitive real estate market here). My cameras didn't fit into my schedule much lately but I started visiting some photo blogs yesterday and the first thing I wanted to do after was to run out an start shooting. I didn't get out this weekend, but I have a load of photos that need processing and posting, starting here.

This is the same ship as the previous post, from a vastly different angle, and vastly different processing. I suspect it may be too dark for some, but I like the stressed/faded processing with the decaying metal of the ship.

Quick question: does anyone know of any good Photoshop tutorials that can help out with colour profiles, specifically with Photoshop CS3 and Windows Vista? My monitor has been calibrated and profiled and I haven't had issues with CS2 and XP in the past, but the new software seems to bugger up the colours on export.
