Default The Stream

Found this wonderful place the other day, it had all the ingredients for a good composition/shot > autumn, stream, leaves, trees, so I came up with this effort: what do you think?

wow. have you boosted the colors? it looks like nature gone wild on this one.
I like the exposure and all, but the colors look blown out to be honest. Maybe it's just me.
Have you altered the saturation or vibrance at all?

Yeah, I reduced vibrance and I boosted saturation, but............not to the point where I thought that I was overdoing it !! Sorry, my bad
(mmmm........interesting, I'm surprised actually, I will open the RAW file again with this in mind, thanks )

What my bad? Looks really good on my monitor. It beats dull flat anytime. I think people are used to looking at crappy colors. I'd call this vibrant.

Default Very good!

I like this shot very much, olympiacus!

Vibrant colors for a vibrant motive. If anything, I would crop the topp 3/4 of an inch. The thick bush- and grass there does nothing to enhance the picture.
