It looks like the photographer, however innocently, may not have been

helping this issue with the way that they processed the photos colors

and tones. Yes, the rich contrasts around the edges of the images make

for vivid viewing, but it seems that for whatever reason, many photos'

skin tones seem to be washed out to produce lighter-than-natural

captures (possibly the photog's use of an LED flash exacerbated this?

just a guess). Then again, the image contrast issue seems to apply

more to the thumbnailed images than the blowups that come when you

click on them...maybe the photographer could adjust his thumbnail

renderings so they more accurately retain the color balances of the

full pics? (And while they're at it, re-arrange the distribution of

these on the page somewhat?)
