OK, Kevin - some observations -

On this set, there's some obvious misconvergence of one of your panels internally. The blue is offset a bit to one side, which shows up in the side edges of the symbol.
There is also ee on the printing and writing below, which creates distracting outlining. Great if you're viewing from a distance, distracting when you're up close and personal with your display, and like it like that.
It's nighttime again here at my computer, and The G90 wins this one on the inkiness of the blacks. Yours has a slight haze to it that defeats the potential depth it could have had. Makes the image look flat compared to the depth in the G90's image. You can also see the blue misconvergence on the cyclist's collar and cuff.
The horizontal bars on the grill of the car behind the cyclists each has a different look to it. On the G90 all the slats are uniform.
All the edges on the background superstructures behind the vehicles are enhanced, making them stand out. They are supposed to be in the background, not stand out. It's distracting and defeats the intended depth perception of the scene, where the background is supposed to be staying in the background.
Similar thing happened on the Leno Show during his monologue, where if you didn't reduce your brightness level during his monologue his desk in the background would be illuminated just as much as he, in the foreground doing his monologue, by the stage lighting. My normal br setting - good for most
video material, as all calibrated br settings are - would illuminate both to the same degree.
They shoulda reduced the cam sensitivity to capture that depth, but didn't. So I had to reduce my br every time I watched his monologue, to keep the background - his desk - in the background.
Depth. Again that slight haze on your blacks. G90's reds are rosier and more glowing.
Dynamic punch. Other than that -
Foreground looks OK, but there's a huge amount of digital outlining and mottling in the out of focus stuff in the background, esp. on that green and red cab in the center. All the lettering on the signs that's out of focus and thus supposed to be blurry and innocuous and stay in the background is standing out because of the outlining of the edges of the out of focus stuff. It gives them sharp edges rather than smoothed-out edges, as out of focus really looks.
That awning in particular, above the cab, shows 2 levels of light level in it - a box within a box - outlined against each other, where there should be a smooth transition from one light level to another, with no breaks. Very digital.
Just some of my observations. Many will say I am just nit picking, and maybe I am. I am sure your pj would look fine to the average viewer. But to a calibrator, these things stand out like a sore thumb.
And to CRT afficianados, who like to take personal credit for how good their sets look because they personally set them up, or had a noted calibrator with a reputation among them - like the great Ken Whitcomb, or ISF's Jim Doolittle - set them up, these things count also.
Not bad tho. Have seen a helluva lot worse, from digitals!
