I've some problems finding the right position for PC and monitor to edit my pictures. Monitor is a CRT, it's an EIZO 21" and working very well, my problem is the monitor position against the window.
The office window is about 4.0 meter heading WNW about 300 degrees in Germany, I can't edit pictures the whole day, except one or maximum two hours in the very late afternoon, especially in summer-light.
Editing shots in the evening will end in badcontrast, badexposure or badqualitiy, also editing in bright daylight. Closing the windows with shades and using artificial light also ends in badquality - apart from missing the outside view
What will be the best position of the monitor, I can use each wall of the room, maybe it's the best way positioning it against the window?

For photo editing, the ideal configuration is absolutely no ambient light. No light bulbs, definetly no windows. The reason for this is because ambient light even in very small amounts can alter the colors that you are seeing.
