Question. doing a test. does this seem to desaturated with not enough contrast? washed out or does it look saturated, deep colors as it should? or what? Need help here with which screen to go by when adjusting. My laptop looks washed out. my big screen looks great, my phone looks little less vibrant than big screen Confusing me. Major differences between a bad pic and good one. (Yes creamy bokeh in background needed but didnt happen)

My moss pics are suppose to be soft colors. Not so harsh orange. Phone looks bright orange. Tv screen bright orange and laptop soft light colors as i wanted. I do not see an option to calibrate my new laptop screen.
Ive been using only my laptop to adjust saturation color lighting when needed. I shoot in raw and use lightroom .

    this has a unique finish--if you push the contrast you might find it more favorable than just raising the saturation--try both, doesn't hurt to have several versions--all in all it's a great shot

    Ty for input james. Its diference in monitors. Ive checked to make sure comp was set to sRGB not RGB and it was. i understand that different monitors may be slightly different but my saturation difference was pretty extreme from what i processed it as. Just recently it's been worse. Ill see if i can overcome it. Flower with white and black butterfly. The flower is suppose to be light pink with not hot pink color. After posting it changed to a hotter pink In the shadow. To hot. I did find a way to calbrate my screen on laptop. Hopefully its right. Oranges and pinks seem to be the issue mostly. Ty james. The feedback on what it looks like on your screen helps. Ive got two laptops going, tv screen and ipad, phone comparing. Tv isnt good comparison i guess. Ty james

    One of my major frustrations has always been that my work can look very different depending on the viewing device. My own device, a refurbished 2007 MacBook, tends to desaturate colours. So when I edit my photos, they can almost look too bright on other devices! This image above looks just a little on the flat side to me, a tiny bit washed out, BUT in this case I actually wouldn't worry about it. It's most likely a fault on my part due to the age of the technology I'm using and to be totally honest it doesn't look bad by any means. Since you have a strong composition and an interesting subject it's enough to offset the slight desaturation.

    Thank you sarah! Appreciate it. I now know that you are seeing desaturated also. This one was a test so i desaturated it more than it should be. Great ty!

    So 3-dimensional. I swear, the wings look like they are moving. (I think I probably would have amped up the saturation a little.)

    The butterfly has good detail and color plus the lines in the wings show up clearly..the problem with too much contrast or saturation sometimes takes away the detail in darker colors..I love how the butterfly is spreading its wings and the angle of it.

    Teresa, this would be a perfect entry for the Community Critique theme challenge.

    I'm currently using my Mother's laptop which is completely different to mine, hers is a Samsung with a different colour setup. But just wanted to let you know that the image still looks desaturated on this one too, pretty much to the same degree. Yet your other photos all look good to me just as they do on my MacBook. So overall, although yes there can be a difference, I wouldn't worry too much about your images looking washed out on multiple platforms. In general I think your usual level of saturation is enough.

    I wanted to put this in community critique but had one in there allready and it will not allow me to put another. Not sure why. But thanks for letting me know what it looks like on your screen. Its good that its washed out. Our screens for this photo look the same then. Thanks everyone. Im just going to not worry so much about it and have fun with it.

    From my monitor it looks like the source light was very flat which can wash out color and make an image look flat. I'm guessing open sky maybe overcast?
