DAYLILY COLOR:

On this web site, the color in the daylily images as posted is "spot-on."

These images have been meticulously and painstakingly color managed, not color enhanced, from point-of-capture to point-of-posting, ensuring that they accurately and uniformly represent the colors of the daylilies as they appear in our gardens. If you view some of the alternate images of our introductions, you may note that there is some slight variation of color among them. This is perfectly normal since depending up natural factors such as time of day, sunshine, shade, or cloudiness the colors in any object, not just daylilies, will appear slightly differently. For example, early morning sun makes colors appear "warmer;" late afternoon sun makes them appear "cooler."

As with all images posted on the web or sent via email, whether or not you are able to view the true color depends upon various aspects of your computer, your monitor, your web-browser and/or your image viewer.

Color management in photography has been around in various forms since the earliest days of color photography. With film cameras, color was managed via specific films for specific lighting situations (outdoor film for sunlight, indoor film for tungsten or florescent lighting, etc.), and/or filters placed over the lens of the camera. During processing, color was further managed either automatically when processed in bulk, or manually by "custom" labs. Always there was a need to manage the color in an attempt to make the images more realistically reflect the color of the actual subject being photographed.

Volumes have been written about the absolute necessity of managing color in digital images. The bottom line is that virtually all digital images from whatever camera, no matter its quality, require slight "tweaks" to correct for such things as white balance and color casts, just as was necessary with film. The only difference is that today with digital photography and computers and various software applications, virtually anyone can have his own computer darkroom and can make a virtually infinite number of changes to the color of an image. Unfortunately, this often results in images whose color bears little or no resemblance to reality.

To manage the color in an image so that it approximates as nearly as possible the color of the subject being photographed requires experience, training, practice, and special equipment.
