I don't really know why, but the blue looks much duller in the .jpg than it does in my original photo :o

In the port of Tyre...

Is the color management done properly your software? There will be a shift if the correct color profiles are not used.

For example, on Mac, Safari and Preview are color managed, but Firefox isn't. Picasa for Mac isn't either, and I was surprised to see that the images I have only resized before exporting would change colors. Even my RAW processing software didn't pick up the right monitor profile, but after I set that, at least the output got consistent with respect to Safari and Preview.

You can check for your browsers here: [link]

I have checked Safari (all pass), Firefox (fifty-fifty) and Opera (fail) on Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.8, and then IE7 and Firefox (both fifty-fifty) on Win XP.

God I am SO late in responding to this... Actually this wouldn't apply because the colors don't just look different in my browser, they look different in Photoshop itself once I save the image as a JPEG :)

Well, perhaps the color profile which gets embedded into the JPG image is different from the original.

Wow, the subject is so simple yet it's really a lovely shot at the same time. At first I thought that the blue was from a light source, but now I can see that the wood is painted!

If you're shooting digitally, the photo will almost certainly looks duller than it really is. It is almost a necessity for every digital shot to be further enhanced in a photo software (like photoshop, obviously), except in rare cases where duller means better :D

But i like this one, nevertheless. It looks "Journalistic" ;)

That's not what I meant, the original photo file looks very bright, by itself and when I open it in photoshop. It's when I save it as a jpeg that it gets dulled.
