Odds are they are different colors on each photo, too. If you're talking
outdoors pix, the lighting is always changing and if you're using something
like a polarizing filter, the lighting/color saturation will change
depending upon the rotation angle of the filter. If indoors, were you using
daylight film? Using a flash? Was the flash powerful enough? What kind of
lights were there (halogen, flourescent, incandescent, etc?)?

well, what is the final product going to be? is this for online or for
print? You can't judge onscreen what will print unless you've had your
monitor and printer color calibrated together, etc.
