Do these look flat and washed out to you?

I calibrated my monitors but at least on person said they were washed out when they looked at it on their monitor.

It's just a tad over exposed.

Try using a photo editoor to darken it down a bit.

Yup they're a tad washed out on my monitor as well. i did a bit of color saturation to bring out the colors and did a curve adjustment to darken it overall a bit. Although these adjustments did also bring out some noise. Probably not a final edit but you get the idea. See comparisons.
