Fire Island Flowers and different monitors

Getting in touch with my inner child. Here is repost of a Fire Island photograph; one of the first images I took with my Rollei. This is a scan of a print.

When I first scanned this negative it came in with a sepia/copper tone. For some reason I have not worked out why but the tone brought out the flowers. So Karen Marshall helped me with the print and toned it in Berg’s Brown/Copper toner and the flowers popped again.

I have tried to recreate this effect in the scan; it hard to tell on this screen though so I may redo this image tomorrow at work.

I tried but I need to rework this. On my iBook monitor this looks fine on this screen the sky is green with some red and the grass much too sepia.
