I'm in the position of having to use a somewhat inferior monitor to work on my photos and I just can't tell about some things such as color and sharpness.

For example on the following shot I'd appreciate it you could take a look at the sharpness and see if it's been over/under sharpened and the color to see if it's too pale or too saturated and things like exposure (levels) as well and just give me an idea of whether or not I'm close on it. Thanks.

If it's an LCD monitor, make sure it's set to its native resolution. Anything else will give awful softness.

Also, get a monitor calibrator. I can't encourage this enough. The Huey is a pretty cheap device, and worth every cent.

Well, assuming you have a PC, just right-click on the desktop, choose Properties, then the Settings tab. Make sure the Screen resolution slider is all the way to the right.
