2-fold thread: Calibrated with Spyder Pro.... and a grabshot (sorry)
So I have just used Spyder Pro 3 to calibrate my monitor to Gamma 2.2 and 6498K (recommended is 2.2 and 6500K) so very close.
But my screen to me doesn't look particularly white on my whites, and somewhat duller than I had it previously.
So I grabbed the camera and flash, and fired off a shot of my lass mucking about in the living room, hence the grabshot bit.
In the first I have imported the RAW direct from LR unchanged and converted to sRGB in PS for the website, and in the second, the same but using LR's AUTO button, but then tweaked by myself in LR to what I thought was better using a few of sliders. Finally, in the 3rd, I did all the adjustments in LR first myself, then exported to PS and used curves, levels, contrast, and finally saturation to get her blue PJ's more to what I saw them like with my eyes (lost the blue in the first two because of the flash I guess, even though it was diffused).
So the questions are:
Is it either looking as it should on someone elses monitor?
Is the 2nd image, tweaked better or worse than the first?
Is the 3rd, my interpretation, better or worse than numbers 1 or 2?
Or are all 3 not good...?
