How do these look (colors, brightness and contrast)?

My monitor has been all over the place color, brightness and contrast wise, it’s driving me crazy. Ordered a Spider3 yesterday hopefully that helps

Scanned these and others on Monday night using a Nikon coolscan V, recall the film being some type of Fuji chrome but maybe not. The monitor was fine Monday but on Tuesday when I was going to finish editing it was wacky.

1) How does the sky look is it to dark?



2)How does the foreground look, heat haze seem to be casing a more of blue tint over the shot then I recall, or is it the scan

I really like how it looks. I'm not sure how light you want it, but to me it looks dark and mysterious.

This one does seem like it is a bit dark in the foreground. I still like it, but a lot of detail is lost.

Keep in mind that I am no expert ;)

Well just for comparison, because I don't pretend to understand your sensibilities, here are versions with simple shadow/highlight applied. Slight saturation in bottom shot too.

The second pair of shots are both improvements, particularly the trees and mountains in the second image. I'm guessing you've tried downloading a few reference charts to roughly calibrate your monitor before the Spider arrives?

1- Composition is stunning. Sky looks good.

2- Again, great comp. Its a little cold, but the scene makes up for it. The above edit looks good too.
