Samsung, Acer, Benq, Viewsonic, all make good lcd panels You may want to pay attention to color correctness since you do digital photos.

Most top manufactures make good lcds in the 20-22 range. Look for higher contrast ratio, response times ~5ms. What do you plan to do with this monitor? Watch movies? play FPS games? CAD work?

Your first consideration when buying an lcd monitor should be the video card that drives the video signal. For the best results, your video card should  be capable of outputting the native resolution of the LCD monitor at the proper refresh rate.
