Hello Critique Corner! It's been awhile, but here I am, humbly crawling back to you for more of your sage advice.
My first question is...is the first photo too flat? I do my work on a very contrasty IPS monitor and my photos always lose a little pop when I view them on a TN screen.
Secondly, which of these photos looks like the more properly exposed one to you? Which is more pleasing to the eye, and are the two necessarily always going to be the same? I feel like I've been struggling to find that second-nature feel for perfect exposure and contrast for awhile now. Your thoughts and opinions are always appreciated!
