Testing monitor colors vs scanner colors

I have two photos here both the same girl, but one is a scanned negative, PP'd in PSE, the other is the printed photo then scanned, no PP. I want to know if you can see the same colors I do.

Pink hat, blue outfit, sweet little girl with too much red in the flesh tones in the scanned print.



Original scanned negative


Scanned photo/print


The fish she's holding I caught, she just likes to hold fish.

My Vote

I would vote for the 'Original Scanned Negative'. As for the red flesh tone the little didn't put on sun screen and got a sun burn.

You might want to calibrate your flatbed scanner.

I forgot about this thread because no one answered me in a few hours after posting.

Wheatfield, how would I go about doing that?
