Have you tried using a polarizing filter on the lens... to help with that glare a little?

Thank you to all who participated. Why I did this was to confirm one of my believes.

You see, the reason for some to see pics too Light, too Dark or too Blue is- and this I believe- the fact that no one's Pc Screen (Monitor) is set at the same "Colour/Lightness/Brightness" , hence the reason for different opinions on photo quality/Colour.

What I actually did:

I took a couple of pics on standard Auto Mode and did no enhancement/corrections to any of the pictures marked "A".

I then took these 03 pics and just did "Auto levels" on them and posted them as "B"

So, no different settings to any of these pics, just auto Levels.

Siyaya, thank you for the input, I do use a Filter from time to time. Crispin, thanks, but settings are not playing a roll in this experiment.

Sims, you know you more than welcome to, if you answered your phone on Monday, you could have made some money out of me, I bought 04 new T5's, 05 new electronic Ballasts and a couple of pumps from the local (Expensive) Lfs as well as some test kits

autolevels is huge difference, the depends on your software being used, the calibration driver of your printer and monitor, even the algorithm on your camera...
