Overall, I take back my earlier comment as it was probably due to viewing angle differences rather than actual physical differences in the files.

Hope this new analysis helps. :thanks:
I noticed the same and wonder if it was the angle of view, and or that there might be a filter on your screen and depending on how you look at it the color and contrast change with it. It's interesting though and a fun exercise! S-

Linda;
The sky is different. Clouds/barn. Tree on the right. I could go on, but there are differences in all elements. I don't have an expensive monitor, just a ho hum LG 19". The only calibration, if you can call it that, is that I use a black to white strip that came with the graphic card software.Work in 32/16bit and print/review in srgb? Oh boy, are you going to loose detail in fine subtle areas. Perhaps my biggest "groan" is printer manufacturers who will say their printer has a wider gamut. What the hell does that mean. I questioned that to an Epson rep at a trade fair. He didn't know. I remember when I was working for a retail chain in their IT section, and the store was selling some printers at a discount. Only it cost MORE to BUY another set of inks than to buy the printer complete. Why do we have to put up with this nonsense? It's 2018 not 1918.

Thanks so much, Ed! Which one did you feel looked better?

Gosh Linda. They are so similar. If I have to do that, then I'll pick the first. If only that the tree to the right of the barn has more detail.
I think what is more important, is that TO YOU which one describes the scene as you remember it?
Have fun!

I can't really see any difference :D Earlier in the thread, Duck made several comments re the differences, but later he decided it was just the angle of view from his laptop. Chuck couldn't see any difference either. #1 is resized the way I always did prior to wanting to check out the "save for web" feature, so I guess I'll keep doing that way. Many thanks!

Linda, if there is a difference, I can't see it on the monitor I'm currently using. It's a work monitor and not really set up for graphics, though we do a lot of work in a graphic environment. We're just not all that critical about color and contrast. I was mostly looking at sharpness.

Linda, I am late to this party, but here's my two bits. I am using a 15 inch MacBook Air and have both images open at the same time. My reaction would be the same as Duck's first, but not with the specificity. I prefer the second image. But since this has progressed beyond that early point, I yield the floor. Well done. Matt
