Yup more cat pix. :laughing: This post was edited - just curious which image looks better for people - top middle or bottom? Thx a ton!!
Top - original upload
middle - image redone according to new monitor calibration
bottom - selected the white balance more precisely and make a curves adjustment.

Beautiful image Marko, and amazing eyes, and they seem to have more variety in their wardrobe than I do. Love that expression on the one on the left Marko. NOT looking impressed at all.

Thanks for the comments - They are much sweeter than their expressions let on.

Nice fun shot Marko,

As to a preference - I found that hard. My initial, quick reaction was I liked the greater contrast (and corresponding sharpness & brighter colour) in the first one.

After reviewing it in more detail, I found I preferred treatment of the darker tones in the second one. There is more detail in the shadows, without losing the detail in the lighter areas. The more time I spend looking at them, the more I am favouring the second.

I am looking at this at work on my work monitor and will look at them again at home

To nit pic. On my monitor .... The first seems to have a very slight purple tinge (maybe due to the colour of what they are laying on). The second one maybe a very slight greenish tinge. The third one is the most accurate to what I would perceive it to be.

On my monitor the bottom one is the best, the reds are best in it, it is warmer toned imho.

now that the 3rd has gone up - yes I agree the third looks better to me too.

Great shot and processing! Seeing all three, I prefer the look of the last one. But if I had seen each one independently each one would have looked fine.

Of the three, number 2 seems the best to me... the richer colours is what attracts me to it. The last one feels a little washed out and the first one seems too blue. Note this is based on my monitor at work so I may not be the best one to respond.

Appreciate the responses everyone!

I am going to go with the third choice as well. Very cute!

Time well spent on the third one, it shows a better color on my monitor especially the magenta in what they're laying on. Being a cat in your home is likely the "Life of Riley". Most of the time, that is. I guess we all must earn our keep sometime.:D
