Default New LED monitor = underexposure

How does this look on your monitor? I've set my new one as best I could, but still not sure about it.
This reject for underexposed looks O.K to me. The snow is bright white.
Opinions on brightness and color please.

The CP red is quite dull in that frame.

Thanks - I'll try adjusting the shadows and brightness and see what happens.

Poor image quality, soft, or something...the nose of the loco looks poor.

Yes that too!
I should have listened to my own instincts. The original plan was not to submit it at all.

Any comments on this one? http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...d=999396&key=0

I think I need to try recalibrating my monitor.

So I recalibrated my monitor and started from scratch because of the image quality issues Jim mentioned (I think I kept tweaking the contrast, which killed the first attempt).

And did a b&w of the other rejected picture to get rid of the effect of the conflicting light sources.

Nice, Jim, you fixed the PIQ issues, and now, as a special wreck shot in pretty snow, is already ToL24!
