The example i took was from Wikipedia, not sure what posting a screenshot from an emulator would prove, different emulators can have different palettes and may well be trying to recreate the look of an old television, but if that's the comparison you'd prefer i can oblige, doesn't really change anything though imho, blue is still blue, green is still green... in fact some colours are even more similar using this example. It would be interesting to see an actual C64 graphics rendered using the Dawnbringer palette.
