I would have agreed with Vito about the blow hilights on the first one... but I don't have a calibrated monitor so I didn't say anything.

Most of the top 1/2 of the breast is blown out for me, but I just assumed it was my monitor and moved on.

If it wasn't for house repairs I'd have something to calibrate with by now.

It's very very close to being blown out that's correct , but according to my histogram and monitor it's not quite, but I can alway's do it again, the shot is 1/3 underexposed (as alway's with one time shots).

Greetings,
Frank

Remember that when you convert your image to a format that is viewed on the web, you lose a significant amount of detail and resolution. I don't know what workflow you use, but I start out with full size 16 bit TIFF's at 300 ppi AdobeRGB and when I want to display them on the web, they go to 640X480, 8 bit jpg at 72 ppi sRGB around 100k. In addition to the size change, bit change, and resolution change, the conversion to jpg format compresses the file further and loses information.

Combine that with the fact that most people don't have a calibrated monitor and those that do, may or may not, be calibrated the same as yours.

Just food for thought
