    Thinking of printing this for myself

    Here is a shot I took this fall just to the north of me. After first working on it, I know I went overboard some it was more just having some fun. The problem is the more I look at it now and them darn the more and more I an liking it. I am not going to change it I as just looking for you thoughts. Remember this is a very stripped down jepg of a very large tif. so the quality is not all the great.

    Good. That's the way it should be. You created it.

    The fact that I happen to like it too could be put down as an added bonus .... or not!

    I couldn't find anything to not like either. It's one of those photos that you could sit and gaze at for hours

    It is a lovely scene. But, the blue sky and greens look over saturated on my monitor and I feel it distracts my eye from the stream and colorful leaves. You might consider cropping out one-half of the sky to focus the viewer's attention more on the center of the image. If this was how you saw the scene, then by all means, leave the image that way. Your personal preference overrides our opinions... photography is art and you are the creator and artist.

    Paul you are right, the sky is over cooked, I used a colour grad to bring colour into the sky, set it aside as a lesson, however each time I sorted through that folder something about it keep me going back to it. Again you are dead right about that saturation.
