At least they look that way on other computers than my own laptop.

They look overly bright on my machine, and I feel compelled to tone down the exposure a little bit.

But when I look at it on other people's computers it turns out that I was way off, that in fact, they're now rather dark.

I guess, that's a lesson learned. I need to somehow figure out why my photos look so bright on my own machine. I will apply this lesson to my next batch of photos, when I start processing them.
