My monitor is a little off, so can you guys/gals tell me if this is properly exposed? Is the black true black and white true white? I am going to print this 24x36, so your response is greatly appreciated!

Cordially,

I like it though it looks a bit too green imo.

LOL...they do look the same to the naked eyes, and mine are naked! Seriously, I just lower the green saturation a bit. I can't wait for the new monitor and calibration tool.

I would say that the second one looks a less green that the first but it still is green. Or maybe my eyes are already strained from reading a lot of posts. :)

you can't achieve true black and white with a color sensor. get an old 30d or 40d converted to monochrome if you really want that look.

the pics look good, tho.

Thank you all for taking time to response. I am going to print a 4x6 from a local pro lab and then go from there.
