You may or may not find this useful.

A test for you to see how well you detect colours accurately.

I got 11, which I think is good, but it took me a while. You can't do that in a hurry; you can stare at it and suddenly realise two need swapping.

Never stop photographing. It is very likely that your best photograph has not yet been captured

I got a 12. I think I could do it better if I did it in a different way than what I did but I am pretty satisfied with my 12. My misses were all in the middle and I can tell you that I flip flopped a few in the middle a few times but I think that if I slowed down I could do a little better.
I'm an old film guy just playing catchup in this digital world. Help me out.

I got 3, but my eyes hurt when I was done! The ones I missed were basically the middle 3, the blue/green colors.

So since I missed the same three we can agree the test is wrong and now I get a 9. :) I did re-do it once and got down to an 8 but I was not thinking that I had any wrong.

Damn it! I've got to make it upstairs on crutches to do this on the PC. Can't do it on the iPad.
I once prayed to God for a camera, but quickly found out he didn't work that way.... so I stole a camera and prayed for his forgiveness.

Scored a 15 here  :-\ I didn't rush it but i wasn't too pedantic either, there were a few i could see that didn't look right, but they didn't seem to fit anywhere else. Take the 3 that we all agree are wrong and i'm down to 12:)

I really need to do a calibration, my main display is a TV and the reds pop like nothing else. Makes it hard to fine tune when processing. That's not an excuse for this test either, I did it on a work monitor:)

I got a 4.  Was rather fun to do.  I could see where a poor monitor could REALLY lead you astray.

So I finally made it upstairs to the PC and given 5 minutes I managed this



Sorry guys but those 3 are all in the right order if you ask me  ;)
