    I have been using a monitor at work that I didn't think much about it until I started to realize that I think that this monitor is was very warm in color. I have been editing pictures with this monitor and the colors of these pictures are very cool because of how warm my monitor was.

    This is what it the color looked like before I corrected it:

    This is after:

    My question is... which one looks more natural (to those who have calibrated monitors)?

    I like the shot - and with the brightening of the eye in the edit I like it far more :) What is it - some specices of fox?

    As for the colour - well I am uncalibrated, but the first looks the most natural to me- the second looks like it has too much green in it

    There was no brightning to the eye in the second... the only thing I did was make the second look natural to my monitor after I played around with it.
    To green huh? hmmm... anybody else with a calibrated monitor?

    me (uncalibrated again) but the first of the two portrate shots looks the better of the two. However the second looks slightly more natural colouring - maybe a little hint of blue if I look at the headdress - but it looks more washed out when compared to the warmer first image
