    Hi,

    I’m not asking for critique on composition but instead I’m seeking your opinion which colour looks more natural (be it from a calibrated LCD or otherwise).

    I have 2 laptops but both gave me different colour rendition. I post here 4 sets of pictures 1,2,3,4 from laptop A and 1a,2a,3a,4a from laptop B. I humbly ask your opinion which laptop appears to you more natural to you. If you think it’s a mixture set, do also let me know.

    The downside of comparing these pictures is if you are viewing from the same screen (say a calibrated one), then the other set will appear unnatural and vice versa. So its best to view in 2 different sets of laptop (a calibrated against a non calibrated). LOL, many many conditions.

    I also appreciate your comments (if any) on why you prefer that particular set.

    Thank you so much.

    Yes, in the color photos, the neutrals are polluted with yellow-green. Way too much yellow-green in the second shots of the two girls, the swans,and the people at the benches. In the monochrome photo of the man with the cigarette, the top photo has a cold, purple-ish-blueish color, while the second shot of him has a brownish, sepia-like look to it.

    Thank you guys so much for your input.

    I noticed older laptop (mine was 3 yr old or around that time), the LCD seems to incline on the bluish hue whereas the new computer these days (16:9 format) has definitely more yellow hue.

    I would expect a new computer should be accurately calibrated from the factory but doesn't seems so. Any explanation for that?
