Did you use the ICC profile (download from Dry Creek Photo), proof your 
image on a calibrated monitor, set the order to disable automatic color 
correction, and make sure your order was processed on the correct 
printer (the one that you have the profile for)?  If not, then it's a 
gamble if you get a good photo from any printing service.

Kodak and Shutterfly assume the photographer doesn't know how to do 
corrections or proof before printing, and their service corrects for 
them by default.  Again, it's a crapshot if you will get what you see on 
your monitor, because they are going to change the file before they 
print it.
