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.

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!!!
