hi guys,
am new here...
new to photography.

I have a picture below, which shows appropriate exposure when I view with my monitor,
but received feedbacks that the picture is underexposed.

please help to see if the picture is really underexposed in your monitor?
so that I may need to calibrate my monitor?



thanks in advance!

if you're using PSCS, you can use the Shadow/Highlight to increase the Shadow amount to 25%, leave the Highlight at 0%

i will say that its abit underexposed deffinately coz its looks abit dark here. yup use PS to increase e levels if u do have 1 it may turn out your photo to be a charm.

yeah may need to readjust....check both monitor and the graphics card software...
some of the settings u need to take note are the contrast, brightness, color temperature and gamma settings

look nicer now on my monitor (calibrated).

you can either tune down your monitor brightness level by your judgement, or buy a basic calibration tool which costs about $200-300 to calibrate for you.

It's not little, it's a fair bit.

Looks better. Though I cannot understand what you're trying to show in the pic.

Get an EyeOne or XRite :)
