Thanks, all! There were two other shots from this hike that seemed to grab me at the time and this one went unloved for months. I was looking for colorful images to test my calibration across two very different monitors and two different printers ... and this one caught my eye. I rarely use the "Landscape" color profile in LR, but for once it really worked well.
@Justan - Yes ... I did print a few different takes at 8.5 x 11 last night on my HP 6-color printer - they look terrific. I think I overdid the "burnt edges" after seeing the prints. I have an Epson 2200 coming soon and will probably do a 13 x 19 when that gets here.
@Hans - I have calibrated the new monitor ... like 20 times and am still having a bit of trouble. I have a Spyder 3 Pro and the Colorvision software. My laptop has a nice monitor for a laptop, but it still only has about 42% coverage of adobeRGB. That said, it seems more accurate after simple profiling in its default/native state than anything I have yet achieved with the new LED, wide gamut monitor.
I'm using the wide gamut display over the analog input ... I don't have a way to use the real DVI and write to the internal LUT - yet. Hopefully soon, but for now I am stuck tweaking the OSD to get close to target prior to profiling. The profile seems decent, but the profile on my laptop actually seems better.
