Hi I need your help please. I made this photo dark on purpose and it was suppose to just show the outline of the seed at the top with the 2 lower seed kind of fading into the background, you should also be just able to make out some shadow to the right of the seed.
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/249/thumb/98917.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/249/thumb/98917.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Can you tell me if that is what you see. I happy if that is what you see and you feel it is a bit dark but if that is not what you see then maybe I need to think about recalibrating my monitor.

Yes, I see what you're seeing, I guess it was too dark to begin with maybe? But thats how you wanted it :)

I am seeing the three seeds also.

I see three seeds... I think with a closer crop this would make a lovely semi-abstract. Nice colours, too. Sorry others couldn't see the seeds.

Maybe this can help for those who can't see it very well.

I'm torn here. I cannot see any difference between the last 2 100%blacks but if I adjust my monitor then when I create a dark image even less people would see what I had. I do think that properly adjusted is always better though! Ok adjusting now! Love it when I argue with myself as I always win.
