I like this photo, but I'm not sure why! I've cropped it quite a bit.:O

Nice composition but the color seems to be off a bit. The green doesn't look quite right. I think it needs to be shifted a little in the red direction.

It is interesting and it definately does look oversaturated.

Nice shot, I thought all the green was moss growing on the wheel. :-)

Probably down to the light and texture.

I agree about the saturation.:-)

Everybody is right on this one. It does have a lot of "moss/mold" on the wheel and it was lit with direct flash. I tried to play with it in photoshop but just couldn't get the color the way I liked it. I thought you guys might have some suggestions for it! Perhaps I should try it as a black and white! Thanks for all the comments. If you are bored and feel like adjusting the colors I would be curious to see what some photoshop experts could do with it. :-)

I tried some hue/saturation/lightness adjustments. Hue:-11, Saturation:-17, Lightness:+4. I am not sure if it is better or not.

Though it appears it's green that's over-saturated, my bet is that yellow is the culprit. Try playing with Hue/Saturation again, but this time, work on the colors individually. By applying the same adjustments to everything, you end up losing some of the red, and I don't think you want to do this.

What you like about this photo is its excellent composition and its wonderful texture.

Thank you calr and Barbara for taking the time to work over this image. I'm going to work on it a little more.
