|Three different lichens here. Look closely for the little brown button just left and a bit below the centre.|

We went to pick up some printed photos of reeds and dried pond scum today, the second trial for that batch. They turned out far too bright, the greens were too yellow, the browns weak. On my screen, they had looked right. I discussed this with the technician on duty, and he told me that my screen colours were calibrated wrong.
To my eyes, the screen looks right; the colours in that photo, on my monitor, were as we saw them in real life. But this is the third time that what I see here is not what we get in a print-out.
Can you help me? Look at the colours above; as I saw them on the bridge, and as they look on my screen, the main lichens are pumpkin-orange, with butternut squash flesh tones in the yellower places. The grey lichen in the first photo is grey, with just a hint of bluish. And the paint is aqua, about the same as one column to the right of 00FFC0 here.
The colours, as I see them, are fairly saturated; only the greys are faded out.
What do you see? How does the colour show up on your screen?
