Dark here also(Calibrated LCD). Except the last Shot. Nice pictures though. My best friend lives in SD.
He just Surprised Us the other day with a Visit.
I really wanted to take the family out there this year and visit him. But, Its just not in the cards.

Thanks For Sharing

Tell me if this is any less "dark".
Thanks a bunch!

Thanks for all the replies and comments.*

I am posting this screenshot to show what I am seeing on my LCD in comparison to browsers. My work LCD is an Apple 23" LCD professionally calibrated connected to a G5 Mac. Top left is Safari, bottom left is Internet Explorer, and Right is Photoshop CS2. The photoshop image is 95% accurate to our proofing system.


I noticed on this pic that it did have an overall darkness compared to my home monitor so I added 20 brightness and 10 contrast, pleasing to me. It also seems Photobucket changes the image tone slightly also.

This is for reference and I hope it helps others also. I am trying to find out what looks good to most folks when posting to web and will use that as a guage for future posts.

Pic 2 (top right) looks the most natural IMO

On a whim, I went over to the PC and looked up the same images, and guess what? They are all friggin' "DARK"! I can see what you guys are talking about. I will use this system as my baseline for what I post from now on. Thanks for the input. Jon

Photobucket does compress photos that are beyond their size limit, and they don't do it very gracefully. I've used Photoshop to compress mine but if you compress too much, you'll lose some color (especially oranges in sunrises). It didn't show in Photoshop, but did when I uploaded them and viewed them with IE. I've also noticed that things that look bright on my monitor at home, look darker on the good monitor I have at work. Everything looks lousy on the bad monitor at work, and the laptop's color is a bit too blue. I feel your pain!
