Hi, I've had a setback lately with my Laptop broken and its taken a while to get everything up and running again on a new machine. Its nothing special, just an i3 with 8Gb Ram, but the screen seems nice enough.
I had plenty of colour issues when I first started with the K7 caused by some setting mismatches which I didn't realise (eg using a LAB colour mode for saturation adjustments) and I also needed to make some tweaks to my screen settings. I'm keen to avoid any of this again, so I've run a few older DNGs through my software, the same processes I always use, just to check them for colours .... Its so I can see them up on the web here to judge them against the same type of shots processed on my old Laptop, as well as for you guys / girls to have a look and let me know what you're seeing ....
Just want to be sure that there's no strange colour casts or one channel looks too strong (eh that dreaded yellow!) .... obviously as you know I do like the saturated look, so bear that in mind, but in general I am trying to reproduce these scenes in a natural way .....
Many thanks for any feedback colour-wise

Thanks, I can see the magenta in that beach one too .... its just there for some reason, but its a one-off I think. Mainly concerned with reds/ yellows and making sure the saturation is no too OTT ... Thanks for the feedback
Probably worth downloading a 30 day demo of Perfectly Clear if you have any suitable program to take the plugin such as Lightroom or PS3 (or higher) It will correct the shots to what they should be and you can adjust your display to make them look right.
Thanks people, I'm relieved to know they look similar to my work on the previous laptop. I'll take a look at that online checker tool, thanks Algi. Of course I've found in the past when there's colour management issues it's usually that they colours look ok to me but appear differently to others once translated over the web.
