    Well idk what it is but the one on the left looks like it's supposed too. I'm looking at them both on my phone and on my computer and the one on the right looks to yellow. The one on the left looks like it would if you were to come to my house and see my dog with your own eyes and the one on the right doesn't.

    I've been following this

    I don't want to barge in, but the people here are correct about the color cast to your photos. They have a decided blue cast to them. Back in the film days we used to use color corrected films tungsten, or daylight, were the most popular and gross color casts were usually corrected in printing without us even knowing.

    Now all of that is up to us with a feature on our cameras called white balance. What white balance does is correct for the different types of lighting we may be under. Your camera has a provision for setting a white balance via pre programmed settings: Auto, Daylight, Shade, Cloudy, Incandescent, Fluorescent, Flash, and sometimes a Kelvin(temp)setting. We're pretty lucky that in a lot of cases the auto setting works pretty well.

    I think Frank's edit was a little over the top, but definitely closer to the real thing. All I can say is that your monitor, even being an ACD needs calibration. Here's my take, WB corrected, Black level increased, Fill light added, Sharpened.

    Sonynut, why don't you run out and get one of those expensive Apple monitors and see how it looks to you.
