3 stars revisited
I've been looking into the problem of the ratings not showing up on the site. I've spent some considerable time on it and finally come to the conclusion that the one thing Zenfolio doesn't let you share with your audience is ratings.
So I invented a new tag. 3star
You will see this tag on photos that are 3 star rated. That is they are not perfect. They have flaws. Or they have not been edited fully yet.
Initially I wasn't going to have anything less than 5 star rated photos. But there are so many good historic Tasmanian photos by Beattie, Spurling, Searle and other great Tasmanian photographers. And some of them haven't fared well over the years. Some have degraded. But they are still amazing photos. And frankly, I can't afford to PhotoShop every picture at this point in time. So I have released a number of 3 star pictures.
If you order one of these, I will see if PhotoShop is going to improve the image. And I will do that before you get your print. But for some, no amount of PhotoShop will ever restore the original image. And those we have to accept as they are. Amazing but flawed.

The Beatties Studio blog will provide some behind the scenes information on the studio, the collection of historic old Tasmanian photographs and the digitising process.
