...he was and that picture turned out to be a great one - I may show it someday if he doesn't join aminus3 himself.

Nice to see you! I hope you enjoy seeing what I saw earlier.
Please, leave a comment so I know you have been here.

I got a colour spotlight, see it here.

Umm, where is he?

@CElliottUK: Now I'm wondering if you are seeing what I saw on my work PC's screen today - a very dark, noisy image without any hint of what's on it...
On my laptop it's totally different image...

Get him to join.

@The Mouse: He is very mysterious and I have tried to make him join, but he doesn't want to. Maybe someday.

Monitor calibration is a real problem, what looks great on one looks crap on another. I set my monitors to be duller and less bright than I would wish, just so I know that other folk can at least see what I'm trying to post. But that then means that some folk see an overbright, oversaturated image. It ain't easy.

@CElliottUK: My work PC has not even heard about monitor calibration and if that is mentioned to our IT people they'll look at you and mumble something before running away - they are panicing only because I have my task bar on the left edge of the screen and not at the bottom where they can find it... :) I think my laptop monitor is in quite good balance as most of the pictures look good and are quite same when printed. I have never used any separated monitor calibration software because I'm a Linux user and there aren't too many calibration software options available that I'm aware of.

One thought on this image -

Usually if an image looks different on your monitor than it does on Aminus3 (or any website), it is because the image was not saved with sRGB color space. Please check your image and see what color space it is using. If you would like assistance troubleshooting it further - you can send us a note on the Am3 contact form

also - here is a forum discussion that talks about color space

@Jason Kravitz: I have read the forum discussion earlier because it sounded interesting. I don't really have any big problems with pictures looking different when showing from my computer and showing from aminus3 - my work PC just isn't the best for looking any pictures and this image just looks horrible on it, on my own laptop everything looks just as they should. Thank you for the message anyway, Jason.
