Hi, I've been posting a lot of WW2 photos in military forums over the past few years and find that although the photos look fine on my monitor screen, people often tell me that they look too bright or too dark on their monitors, and I can't understand why!
I've been juggling the brightness/contrast/gamma settings on my monitor and on my Nvidia card, but still can't crack the problem, so can I ask Bleeping members to give me some feedback?
It'd be a great help if you could simply look at these 3 photos and tell me which looks best on your monitor, A,B or C? Thanks

Thanks guys, for the record 'A' looks much too dark to me, and 'B' looks best on my monitor.

it might be a Win 7 issue, so I'll ask again in the 7 forum.. :)

First one looks best to me, Fairey Swordfish torpedo aircraft if my memory serves me right. C is way too light and b is a little brighter than it ought to be. But B might be ok on some darker screened devices. A is a darker image than any of the othersw but i think it best because it's details stand out more clearly to my eye.
Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.

My systems:2 laptops, intel i3 processors, windows 8.1 installed on the hard-drive and linux mint 17.3 MATE installed to USB
