Is your monitor brightness right for these images?
Adjust brightness down so that the black square on the far right of the scale at left just appears dark and dense and not at all washed out--a true black.  The gray next to it should then appear a darker gray, and the next gray square lighter, and so on until the square on the far left, which should be the only one appearing true, bright white.  Adjust contrast through the range until any flare or blooming is just negated or until screen has proper punch.  Eliminate screen glare sources.  Pictures should now appear rich and fully saturated.

But, regardless of the wide variance in monitor settings, the prints clients receive, where there is no variance (other than the color-cast of the light source in which they are viewed), are guaranteed to be of exacting quality in color, tone, and density.

A lower monitor setting saves power, increases monitor life, reduces eye strain, and gives a better picture through reduced flare and blooming.  Lower levels may not be possible in brightly lit rooms and where monitors are poorly positioned to create reflection glare.

From classic glamour, add fantasy or surreal treatments, like the posterization below.

Or an alien, false-color interpretation, like the Andorian, below.

Publish your photos and bio on the World Wide Web! Or be more intimate.
