What colour profile do you have embedded in your image? What are you using to view the image on the Mac and PC?

well i used the mac software to calibrate the monitor for "PC". Color profile embedded in my images are Adobe 1998.

To view the images on Mac I use Photoshop and use Photoshop on PC as well. Also I view the images on the web

here is an example. this image looks fine on my mac. the rear bumper doesnt look all discolorated and there is no streak through. on my pc, the rear bumper is discolored and there is a streak.

Try embedding sRGB for viewing on a monitor and see if the image look OK. That said, Photoshop on Mac and PC should recognise the embedded profile and display the colours correctly.

Can you repost the image with sRGB embedded.

You should convert to sRGB for web display of images. That way PC and Mac users see the same thing. That said, Safari on a Mac is colour aware and will display aRGB and ProPhoto correctly too.
