I love the treatment. Photography is often about capturing or preserving a subject just as it appeared to the eye. But other times, it's about capturing or creating a feeling. I for one, am glad we have the latitude.

Can't stop looking at the first one of the 2nd set. The way the water cascades down the rocks had me thinking it's a large but tilt-shifted waterfall. Just how big (small) is it?

As far as the top image is concerned all I can say is; Different strokes.... Had I been the one behind the saturation control I may have reduced the red and blue to bring them more into harmony with the rest of the image. Having said that, I'd never begrudge anyone for their creative experimentation. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

I like what you have done with the first photo, it looks more like an old postcard.

The water cascade in the first image of the second set ... is about 14 inches ... tall (at least the first portion). In the real world, the entire picture is about 4 to 5 feet high It was taken in the Japanese Garden at the Butchart Gardens, North of Victoria, BC. I used some Topaz Filters to create a fake Tilt-Shift on the very top and bottom of the shot.

Nice shots; looks like a lovely place to visit. Shot #3 of the little waterfall grabbed my attention as my favorite with the colors and composition.
