    The source image is AdobeRGB. Most browsers don't understand AdobeRGB so the colors get washed out (e.g. lose color saturation) if the image is left as AdobeRGB when presented in a Windows browser.

    Flickr is just showing the image in AdobeRGB.

    Smugmug converts the AdobeRGB to sRGB when you upload it.

    The Dgrin image is linked from Smugmug so, also converted to sRGB.

    Here they are in one line. Smugmug first, then Dgrin, then Flickr. You can see that the Smugmug and Dgrin images are the same (the same URL actually). The Flickr image lost saturation because it's AdobeRGB which a Windows browser assumes is sRGB.

    If you only put sRGB images on the web, you will not have to deal with this difference. Smugmug is attempting to "do what you meant" and protect you from these mistakes. Flickr is apparently not protecting you from this mistake.
