I personally find it a must have for the screeners to have a calibrated monitor to judge pictures send in by our members.
I personally have a rejected picture that has the comment: too yellow, but I have watched it on several different monitors from the old fashioned one (CRT) aswell as on LCDdisplay and it seemed right.
I know there are several gizmo's on the market to calibrate your monitor to get it right.
So I think it is a neccessaty for a screener to have a calibrated monitor to get it right.
What is your opnion?

I agree, but if possible you should add a link to that photo.

Looks fine, even on my laptop.

Seems a no-brainer to be honest; a calibrated monitor should be essential for screening. I use a Spyder 3 Pro on my monitor and it does make a difference.

All our screeners are photographers and have hundreds of photos on the site. What makes you guys think they don't have calibrated monitors?

While I agree the photo doesn't look too yellow, I also don't understand why the matter was aired for public input rather than being discussed with Ray or a screener by PM?

When you get a message by 1 of the screeners that your picture has been denied for the database there is never a name or a contactbutton or something else for that matter to contact that person directly.
When I look at other pictures on the database and compare them to the 1 I published here I came to the conclusion not all screeners use the same colorpallet for screening.
Most colorsets are to personal liking but if all screeners would use a calibrated monitor most of the pictures will be judged more equally.

Thank God screening is not subjective. I'll tell the robots to calibrate their monitors.

Robots! That's a good one Ray *lol
You're absolutely right, all screeners are humans beings and individuals! So every screener looks a little bit different to each picture, that's absolutely normal, it's human. Even calibrated monitors will not solve the "problem".

My opinion about this.


P.S.: I don't understand all the reasons for rejected picture, but I'm learning to respect the decisions.

I wish back the good old times, when a picture was a picture and not only bits and bytes and when the people knew the meaning of the word respect. Respect is a very rare thing in our days…
