MESSAGE FOR ABOVE PHOTOS....SORRY it did not post, Dave

Sony A7RIV 12-24mm lens at 24mm ISO 400 1/100 sec, f11 hand held. I was always under the impression that images made for the web or email should NOT be PROPHOTO, which is my working space on my calibrated monitor. My prints from my Epson printers seem to duplicate this color space very well. I was under the impression web images should be something like Epson RGB so I usually use that color space for web images. I am posting TWO images, first Pro Photo and the second Epsom RGB. When looked at side by side on my monitor the Epson RGB image really looses its color punch and subtleties. Should I use my working Space as my profile for web images? Thanks in advance. I will also post over on the processing board. Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure about 'Epson RGB' but the colour setting for the web should indeed be RGB. All my screens are calibrated and the images you have posted are extremely saturated, especially when compared to images posted by other members.

Dave, your images posted to the Web should probably be sRGB, not Epson RGB or Pro Photo.
