Very nice indeed

I guess the saturation was normal; using 'high' would have caused oversaturation I think.
Yes, all Pict. Adj settings are set to STD.

This is my routine for Post Prcessing most pictures
1st, I use noise reducing filters to clean up the clear sky noise.2nd, I use the auto enhance and adjust to my liking. 3rd, This was a suggestion from a semi professional wildlife photographer, I reduce the brightness by -3 to-6 % and increase the contrast by the same amount. I know it sounds contrary but it seems to work well. It has the effect of brightening up the colors just a bit. At least with outdoor nature shots. Crop to 8x10 then apply a slight USM. Re-size and post.
If anybody is interested I would be glad to post both the "right out of the camera" picture and the PP picture for comparison.
Just let me know
All the best,
smac
