So in Photoshop you can load that profile into the View -> Proof Setup, and that way you can see what it will look like when printed, and usually those pro printers are serious, so that profile is dead balls on when viewing on a calibrated monitor, it is very satisfying, what you see is what you get. And because you are looking at what it will look like from the printer, you can make any adjustments you need to make that version look good. If Lightroom had soft proofing, it would be even better because you wouldn't need a print copy and an original copy, you could make you changes in the development module and just save it as a virtual copy. So this is one of the very very few cases where I say "Boo Lightroom" - and if Lightroom did have soft proofing, it would solve the issue that we are seeing because you could soft proof in sRGB so you could make any adjustments you need. I have seen a lot of requests to get this in Lightroom (and as soon as I'm done with this, I'm heading over to Adobe to ask for it again )

    Once you make those adjustments, most printers want the file tagged sRGB, but more and more are down with the Adobe RGB.
    White House sure is proud of their prints, eh? CHA-CHING!

    Actually, the reason I got into them is their 5x7 price. They are pretty much more expensive on every other size, but 5x7 they are a very reasonable $0.39 with a $12 minimum (and they have all the artsy fartsy sizes and papers as well as nice volume tools like ftp upload)

    A couple from my work day (and my overnight in Spokane, WA) yesterday.









    Heavy use of the fisheye, I know. But it works, right?

    EDIT: Flipped pic #2 180 degrees. It was accidentally upside-down! Whoops!

    That was a tough shot to get!! I held the camera right against the tree trunk about six feet off the ground. That was about the fifth image I took. Every other one, you could see a part of me in the image. I literally had to make love to that tree in order to get out of the image.

    Is the mallard on the 70-200 (judging by the sharpness)?
