Materials wash out in DR 9.0

When viewing my model in DR my materials get "washed out" when viewing from certain angles or a distance. The attached image properly shows the materials on the front of the house but the lighting washes them out on the side.

Any suggestions or ideas why this is happening or what I can do to correct it?

Thanks

Scott and Volker,

Thanks for the help. I kept running through the model and found the solution. I was viewing it with the "Published View" lighting and that was causing the washed out effect. When I changed the lighting to "Primary" all looked normal. Attached is a screen shot of the same image just being viewed with "Primary" lighting selection.

Thanks
Jay
