I liked these shots of Cate, but I had a lot of trouble in getting the contrast and tonality adjusted in a way I thought suitable. I generally do the initial scanning and adjustments on my old Dell desktop because I have the Silverfast scanning software on that computer. I also like the version of Photoshop better on that computer than the version on my laptop. However, I think the screen on the laptop is better calibrated in regard to what others are able to see, so I end up doing the final adjustments and the jpg image on the laptop.
After all that, the ambient light has quite an influence on how the images appear to me, so I always have to review the final result during the day and during the night. I'm a bit sorry that I don't have the capability of making prints myself any longer as it seems that would give me a more stable result in the end. I guess the problem ultimately boils down to the limitations of the digital medium.
