Some images are highly sensitive to your current display gamma. With the following test images you can determine your current gamma settings. The left and right parts of the image with the correct gamma setting should look almost equivalent, when viewed from a greater distance.
None of these matches? Please try to adapt your display gamma ('xgamma -gamma <value>' for X11, driver properties for some Windows graphics drivers) so that the image for gamma 1.0 matches.
