The Pros and (Mostly) Cons of Upgrading to a 4K Monitor

I'm in the process of getting back into photography which will mean a new camera, more on that in a later post. But the first step for me was a new computer, one with the horsepower to handle a modern day camera and its RAW files. Along with the computer comes a new 4K monitor. 4K is great for media consumption, right? Your characters on your favorite show or movie really look detailed and realistic. Scenery looks wonderful. Everything looks great, right? Wrong. You know what doesn't look great? That photo I took in 2012 that I thought was sharp but is very much not. I transferred over my past catalogs of photos over to Lightroom Classic and eagerly began opening up some of my favorite photos. At first I was happy with how the colors looked and how the scene was composed. Then I noticed it was a little soft. Well I had just gotten a new contacts prescription so that must be it.

Well the new one arrived Wednesday so I was a little pre-occupied to getting this post off. And I'm purposely leaving out a book review because I'm lazy.

About the shot

This was shot for my Project 52 challenge. Of those shots very few of them made it into my "like" column due to various reasons. The theme for this shot was black & white and I enjoyed finding the church and taking only 3 photos (from different angles) and going with this one. I was really happy with how the whole thing turned out, from the clouds to the church and the surrounding details. As with all my black and white conversion, this started off life as a full color shot which I then took into Silver Efex Pro to tweak the process up some.
