As part of my Digital Workflow class, I gave (and did) an assignment to get a set of prints done straight from in-camera jpeg, with no tweaks at all. Given I'm a bit of a meticulous printer, I also captured in raw format and played around with settings to give another take on it. I'm curious to hear which people prefer.

The retouched RAW looks better from what I can see. Of course, my laptop has color consistency issues because of the type of LCD, so that might not be the most accurate opinion.

Interesting. I do colour calibrations on my own laptop, but it's been pretty good even without them. In either case, thanks for the feedback!

It's not the calibration that's the problem. TN-type LCD panels have a distortion-free vertical viewing angle of about 15 degrees. If you're not looking dead-on at the monitor, or if you're sitting too close, brightness varies near the top and/or bottom of the screen.

Ahh. That sounds annoying.

Not so much. It's a minor issue, which is why TN monitors are the cheapest and most widely-used form of LCD. Still, the problem is made worse on laptops because there's more variation in viewing angle.

Great! I did some dodging using a blended layer over it, among other subtle shifts. I may still want to increase the overall contrast on the tweaked shot, but it's looking pretty good to me.
