    Is your screen calibrated accurately? If not, your monitor is showing you incorrect/out of whack colours in relation to what is actually there.
    Canon 5D Mk II - gripped, Samyang 14mm f2.8, Canon 16-35mm f2.8L, 50mm f1.2L, 100mm Macro f2.8L, 70-200mm IS II f2.8L, Gitzo CF tripod and Gitzo CF monopod, Acratech GP Ballhead, Manfrotto Video Fluid Head, Intervalometer, and lots of other stuff!

    Agree with Mark, you need a set standard from screen to print and the first part of producing top quality prints is ensuring your monitor is calibrated. Something like a Spyder is what you need. Then once your monitor is calibrated to a known standard you can start looking at printing and matching that to what you see on the screen.
