    Nice colour but the shot is too dark.

    Thanks for the comments!

    Ron Evers: I think that could be one of our monitors, becuase on my monitor it looks fine, I did in fact try raising the brightness level and it started to get blown out/ not the same mood.

    cheers

    hmm are you by chance using an LCD computer screen and has it been calibrated in any way (and by that I mean with an external hardware based calibrater like a Spyder and not online "free" methods). I ask because the shot also looks very dark to me on my screen. There is certainly a moody feel and the details appear crisp and sharp - but so much is just way too dark - a little more light would be nice

    Yeah, LCD sreen. So my monitor might not be calibrated. I don't have spyder or anything unfortunatly. But I haven't done any other calibration. Would someone mind saving it ading a little light and reposting so I could see if it's my screen or not.

    Like the shot, but wondering if you could try and tell us what color the roses actually are?
    There are dark roses not just bright red ones. I use an LCD screen but built my website on it and it has pretty good color rendition.

    I like the colors and dark mood. Because it is unusual, i think it is too dramatic to be a monitor issue. You could always make and post a gamma strip that works on your monitor and we'll tell you if it is a calibration issue or not.

    I used photoshop elements 7 and just boosted overall brightness by around +75. I also used the layermask to reduce the effect (around 50%brush) in the top right corner - a little more over the highlights there just to keep them from dominating the shot by being so bright. I tried to be conservative to keep that darker mood, though my own LCD moniter is on the blink and I am using an older CRT one (calibrated, but it seems darker still)

    Well I replicated yours so mine looks exactly the same on my monitor. Heres my take on it, I still prefer the darker one though, perhaps the darker one could be lightened not so drastically.
