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.

For +Project 52 B&W I knew what kind of shot I wanted. That cliche shot of a fallen leaf either in a puddle or just on the ground. As you can see, this is not that shot. This is the shot I take when I procrastinate and don't have the time to get the shot I wanted. I do like how it came out though, with the detail looking nice.
