    Dark foliage green vs evergreen?

    I'm planning to pick up a smaller, lighter tarp for backpacking, but I'm having trouble deciding between dark foliage and evergreen. Does anyone here own anything in either of these colors and can post pictures?

    Thanks!

    FYI, that's a stock 11' Cloudburst with Warbonnet's external poles. I like that tarp a lot, but it seems the only photos I have of it are in the yard of my townhome association when I slept out during a big overnight snowfall.

    I like the evergreen, but amazing how much it changes color with different weather/lighting. Sometimes it's plain green, sometimes almost a turquoise.

    But in general...

    Wow, the evergreen does look different in different conditions! It looks olive in that picture! Is that the mountainfly or the thunderfly?

    Thunderfly. It's a great color that really blends into the woods in all 4 seasons.

    Here's another shot

    No dispute, as we all know from judging paint swatches in the hardware store vs. the living room.

    Worth mentioning that in photos, some of that color shifting effect can be down to the white balance used by the camera when the photo is taken. When you see a photo (not like OneClick's) where the colors look grossly off, that's most likely the result of the wrong white balance setting or from using auto white balance when there's different color temperature light sources in the same photo (mixture of natural and flourescent, natural and incandescent, flourescent and incandescent, etc.) Also, auto white balance works by converting the "whitest" pixels in the photo to pure white, and color shifting every other pixel in the photo by the same amount. So if there's nothing white in the photo, sometimes auto white balance struggles to work as well as it does other times.

    Yeah the bright snow is tough. I spend a long time processing photos to make them real as possible...not sure if I spent the time on these, but probably since I'm a picky SOB when it comes to photography. Light coming thru one layer of the fabric also affects it.

    Do you use a camera (even on some phones) that can take the photos in RAW format? If so, and if you're already going to be color correcting in post, you can just shoot in auto white balance all the time. RAW format makes for larger files, but is great for post processing.

    The photos you post (that aren't of your feet.. LOLOL) are well composed and on point. Being picky pays off most of the time.
