Absolutely spot on perfect exposure, Kirsten! Wonderful detail, everything is perfect! I would say that your settings on this computer is right. My monitor is a Dell that came factory calibrated, and is wonderful at helping me with color and exposure. Welcome back, and looking forward to some more of your shots. <>< #11530662

What an awesome close up, SSSKiki. His eyes and expression are so relaxed and intriguing!! - As for color and exposure quality, my tendency is to go dark and rich. (Saturation!) So for me, I think I'd like it just a tad more rich. But this might be JUST personal preference!! I thought my expensive ASUS had perfect calibration until I had canvas's printed and the PRINT SHOP they called and warned me and said my computer's oranges and grays were way off off! It threw me in a spin, let me tell you. Thinking back on ALLLLLLLL my work being OFF! (GASP!) So really none of us can really tell you for certain, even if we think we can, but this image looks good to me. I looked at "Oops" and that one looks a little on the light side. Does it to you also? I'd like to know why your insignia isn't sharp. This tells me that BP isn't displaying our images as sharp as they should be!! You've framed this beautifully! Great job!!

Hi, BP friends.
Sorry for (again) not having been here for a while.
One thing is being buzy, another is that I have a new computer.
And it's taken a while to get everything installed, and I'm still missing some of my editing programs.

But the biggest challenge for me has been figuring out my images.
I never realized how dark my screen had become on my old computer.
But now that I see all my images on the new screen, I realize that all my images are way to light - OR are they? Maybe they were perfectly lit and the new images I'm making here are way to dark.
Please help me decide by looking at my latest two images.
Which one looks best on your screens?
Or could you tell me if this new image is too dark or too light?
And how are the colors?

I really need your help here.
