Re: Monitor Calibration Issues, Please Help

First looks pretty accurate - true colours (or thereabouts). Second is too garish technically speaking - but may well look 'better' on screen - as the human eye tends to prefer warmer colours.

As Kirk Tuck commented in his blog a few months ago (re. picture editor choices) : '... no-one ever criticized images for being too warm'. Many might prefer the more colourful image as expressive of the overall light conditions in the image. Who wants a washed out sunset ... ?

Proof of pudding is in printing - depending on inks/printer etc. you may find one image prints better than the other aesthetically ... and there is certainly no one true 'white balanced' setting when it comes to viewer choice.
