Do your landscape prints look different from what you see on your screen (too dark / too light / colors off)? If so, I may have the solution for you: BACKGROUND TONALITY MATTERS WHEN EDITING Hope you get a chance to check it out.

BTW - in the blog I also discuss the importance of proper calibration and room lighting (both very essential pieces of the puzzle).

This is the image I use throughout the blog. Check out how it appears to go from bright to dark when I change just the tonality of the background in Photoshop - in essence, it tricks your brain! I also list two books that go into detail as to why this happens (listed near the end of the blog).
