Ready for a colour challenge?

I thought I would do pretty well on this, but have to report coming up
with a less than perfect score. (12 actually, perfect is '0').

Perhaps some younger [Baren] members can 'ace' this?

(Maybe it's my monitor ... :-)

Ouch, that was a really tricky one. Sorry to sound like a smart-alec but I got
a perfect zero :-) That said, I have a calibrated monitor and work onscreen
with design software about 10-12 hours a day, so probably a biased case...

Monitor calibration is well worth it -- even the basic USB calibrators do a
heck of a job adjusting for ambient light and so on. My colour designs for
offset print are a lot more accurate since I invested.

Most definitely it has to do with monitors...
I use two monitors and there are different hue and value on each when
compared to each other.

The other factor to consider is that your monitor can vary in value
and hue from one side to the other

The other factor is the hue.... some can see some hues better than
other hues....
For me the last row was much easier than the top row....

Hello Friends.

M Gaffney of Utah and Coonen of Hawaii's packages have arrived today. Can
hardly wait to see what's inside.

Today is the first of November. The deadline was today.
Eight out of thirty artists kept to the deadline.

My apologies in advance to those who were good enough to conform to the
schedule set by Maria.

I doubt that I will be able to keep to my part in a timely fashion. It was
evident to me pretty fast that this would happen, which is why I announced that
I'd not coordinate an exchange again. All praise to Maria, whose sense of
humor and tolerance of foibles is commendable.

Because a large number of the participants will be late (who knows how many
or how much), I will be unable to sort and collate the works in a timely
fashion. Nor will I be able to scan them. Unfortunately, I am preparing for an event
here at the studio. If the prints come longer than 1 week from now it will
not be possible for me to prepare them until the second week in December. So
your packages will be joining the Xmas rush... Let's hope that they are well

Therefore, feel free to give those who are late the dickens. They deserve it.
Don't give it to me, thanks, as it's out of my hands. Others are the cause of
this inconvenience to your packages. I do hope that everyone send the proper
postage too. Those "short" will be asked to send in money before the mailout to
that particular person.

Grumpily yours but happy to see packages!

Oh well, I got a 12 also. I thought what I did looked good on my
monitor, sigh!

I took this a few months back and got about a 20. I was so discouraged so this time I really spent time on it and got a 6. I feel a little better and know that cataracts are not in my near future.
