I've bought a new flat screen monitor recently.. should I darken it a bit? I mean, are these pictures all really dark?

it's hard to tell Hank, these shots are poorly lit.

Also, if the shots are rejected for Bad Dark, and they look okay on your monitor, you will want to lighten your monitor, not darken it.

clickhappy, if the shots look fine on my monitor and are actually too dark... that would mean that my monitor is set too bright, and i made the pictures too dark to make up for that. so if the pics are dark, my monitor needs to be darkened.  Smile

Good luck.

Hey!

I find the majority of my shots are a tad dark unless I push up the exposure compensation settings to +3 or even +7EV. If they are too bright you can compensate in PS. I find this true not only when the subject is darker than the background, but also on hazy or cloudy days when shooting in the "A" mode on the D-100.
Perhaps you have heard of this quirk of the D-100 already, but if you haven't, try it out on some practice subjects. Don't depend on the viewing LCD on the camera to give you an accurate idea of brightness.
I love my D-100 but it requires a lot of practice to get images "just right"....it ain't no point and shoot!!!
Good luck!
