So I don't have a calibrated monitor, which is a problem that really needs fixing. In the meantime, I need to print a picture for my sister. I originally edited it on my laptop, which I knew had terrible color, and I never went back to fix it. She printed it and it came out pretty dark:

With my external monitor I've bumped it up to this:

Can I get some input on whether or not the exposure is okay now?

It's still dark, but its a hard fix without totally killing contrast in the shot. Really needed to use fill flash.

What editing software do you have? It would be best to selectively brighten the two people without cranking the background any brighter.

I can do that no problem. I'll brighten them a little more then.

Thanks guys.
