Nice. I looked at this picture on my 19" Sony LCD at home and didn't see the pillar, which, by the way, looked even better from the east bay, where the cloud backdrop gave better contrast. But now I see it plainly on my 19" Trinitron at work. And I was just thinking about asking them to replace my work monitor with an LCD...

I can see the pillar plainly on my older Sony laptop LCD screen. Maybe your's is not adjusted well.

I've been trying to settle on a reasonable compromise for images I slap up on the web, and I've yet to find it. This was really apparent as I tried to make sense of some of the raw images from the Sierra trip, and I'm still not happy with most of those pictures.

I'll try my home LCD, on my laptop LCD and my work CRT it's okay, but there's still some tweaking that should happen. I don't suppose there's a fairly compact image format out there that's moderately widely supported and actually works in a defined color space?

If you want color-space control, TIFF is unfortunately the only reliable choice.
