While I was away from home I posted 2 pictures using my laptop and the internet connection provided by a motel. I had taken the pictures earllier and thought they looked interesting. When I got home I looked at the pictures on the forum using my desktop and CRT monitor and they looked -YUCK- nothing like they looked on my laptop. When I view the pictures on the forum using my laptop they look like I thought they were going to look. Is this a common problem between LCDs and CRTs or is it just me?

The first picture is a copy of the orignal post as it appeared on the forum.

This is the way it was supposed to look although it is a bit lighter and sharper than the one on my laptop. Do any of you see the difference?

Yup. HUGE difference. The differrences you're seeing is mostly in the monitor calibrations I think, and secondarily some differences due to using a different type of monitor (LCD vs CRT). I'm no pro in this area (and could be totally off base here!), but that is one of the major problems people have in viewing others' posts. We're all looking at something at least a little different from each other, and in some cases a LOT different. Hardware callibration of monitors is a very good thing, but can be quite expensive for 'home' use. Initially at least, a good quality monitor will be fairly accurate. Over time, even the best monitors change and need recalibrating.

I like the first one best. It has more mystery to it, and captures the imagination.
