It's purdeh!

Nice exposure. It's easy to blow out and lose those pinks. Flowers are easier to shoot on film.

Hi Who!

I concur. This is the first pink picture of mine I've actually been happy with..

Experiment: Try shooting a Coca-Cola can! That red is deeper than any red in the digital spectrum, so the colour can't probably be represented with a JPG or even RAW camera data. The same can be said for a lot of yellows, pinks and purples.

It would be nice if the whole digital colour spectrum were remapped (I guess the Quattron TVs are a step in that direction.) to have wider colour gamuts.

Maybe the digital camera industry should consider adopting the Quattron's RGBY system.. Maybe then we could shoot a Coca-Cola can..

According to Sharp's site, a key mechanism of perceiving colour involves comparing levels of red versus green light and blue versus yellow light, which all happens in a special layer of neurons within the retina. The addition of the yellow sub-pixel (to the standard red, green and blue) in this product creates so many new colour tones that the new technology Sharp is using to create images is mimicking critical features of the brain’s visual system.

Not sure what this all does for PINK though.. ;)
