Sorry but I too cannot see much of a difference on my 27" iMac, my 24" Dell, or my iPad 3, and those are what I primarily use to view photos. Maybe I am missing something by not having any of those screens properly calibrated.

Yes, Joe, you are indeed missing something. And I fear it is more than just calibration. I just checked on my iPad 2, and I can see the difference perfectly and strongly, and the iPad 3 has even better color response than the iPad 2.

Since what's most apparent in this example has to do with the reds, if I might be so bold to suggest, you might have your color vision checked. But when you said you couldn't see it on your iPad 3, the suspicion is definitely raised. My son is red/green color blind; next time he comes over, I'll check with him to see what he sees on my main monitor, where the effect is very noticeable.

but then, I imagine, so is the vast majority of the photo-viewing public.

Yes, I fear you are correct, for one reason or another. When I view on my MacBook Pro monitor some of the things that I like so well on my main monitor, I find them to be a very disappointing, pale and anemic imitation.

take care, and good luck
