Exposure looks fine to me although it does look a little flat.

It appears to be in ProPhoto RGB, a huge gamut colorspace, and appears over saturated on my monitor. Try converting it to sRGB.

ChasP505 is correct; the photo has a ProPhoto RGB color profile.You need to convert it to sRGB for online viewing.

More importantly, there's no possessive form of "holiday's" the correct word is "holidays."

Ahem.

"What's the date of New Year's Day?"

"That holiday's date is January first."

You're welcome.

:p

EDIT: not that this bit of pedantry helps Mike any. Your pic has a good exposure but looks oversaturated on my calibrated monitor. But that's often a matter of taste...

Heh! Number six and thaking were right, the point PixelMagic should have made is that there is no apostrophe in the plural form of holidays!

Mike, you often see pictures posted by people with uncalibrated monitors, or at least ones without the brightness toned properly down, look darkish to those of us who do, but not typically the other way around, and since this shot looks well-exposed for the subject (with the background much darker), I'd assume that's how you want it to look, and possibly there's another problem.

Like has been said, get the color space right and see what that does, but having it actually dark is likely to be something different, maybe facebook processing.

I wonder if there is a way to link a facebook picture to another site so that we could see it online without having to go through the "join facebook and make a friend" thing?

My monitor is cal. I have three versions of it and one is way off. I think it had something to do with it when I exported the photos from LR3 to ps4 and didn't have my custom profile saved. The only way to see is through FB My name is Michael T. Moore

Here is a new one....and I'll make the correct spelling of it.


Here it is with a different picture...I dodge the tree a little bit more

Ahem.

I wasn't going to say anything about the apostrophe because I do proofreading of ads all week long. Never on Sunday! ;)

Mike,

You say you "dodged the tree", which may point out the real problem -- in your original image, the girl is well exposed except for the shadows in her hair. Everything in the background is quiet dark except for the little lights. This basically means that your camera exposure wasn't well-balanced between the flash and the ambient/background lighting. Is this what you're referring to? If so, you'll need a fair amount of shadow lightening to bring out some more detail -- the hair shadows could be a guide. You want to amplify those shadows but with care because that will bring out noise.
