Which looks more correct

exposure wise. Just got a new monitor, and calibrated it, only to discover that all my previously edited photos look a bit dark on the new set up. I'm trying to determine whether thats because I've been making them too dark right along or if my new monitor is not bright enough.

Re: Which looks more correct

My impression favors the 1st, darker version.....but then I'm viewing on this on a new yet uncalibrated monitor as well. I like the greater detail of shadows in the 2nd but it comes at the expense of greater loss in highlights.

Re: Which looks more correct

I agree with Russ, the darker one seems a bit better,with the lighter one seeming a bit washed out. But I'm splitting hairs.

Re: Which looks more correct

On my work computer, I prefer the first of the two. Will check my laptop when I get home...more out of curiosity.
I have been concerned about this thing, cause I edit on a laptop, and wondered how to calibrate that.

Re: Which looks more correct

Pith,

On my Mac laptop #1 (darker) looks better, but with the calibrated monitor on my desktop computer #2 (brighter) is the best.

Good luck,
Richard Baker

Re: Which looks more correct

Both shots are very nice. The darkness of the first adds to the story and character of the home. The second shows much more detail of the home itself

Re: Which looks more correct

I don't know what to think at this point. All my images taken and edited on my old monitor look too dark on the new calibrated one. Meanwhile, the second shot which I re-edited on the new monitor looks about right. I also noticed that the new monitor seems noticeably less bright than the old, even though its brightness default is at 100%. I'm wondering if somethings wrong with the new, or if everyone else's is wrong, in which case what's the advantage. One person at the Viewsonic company told me that this type of LED back-lit monitor can be slightly dimmer than the conventional florescent back-lit type. pith

Re: Which looks more correct

I have looked at both pictures on my laptop LED and my 24" samsung LCD desktop monitor, and on both #1 looks better.

Re: Which looks more correct

#1 looks better on my monitor. #2 starts to lean toward a washed out look but not to the point it is objectionable.
