Nice shots. Even a bad shot would be a good one if you have a subject like this. It bothers me that when I look at your shots they look rather dull with not much saturation. However, when I copied the second one to my desktop, it was suddenly very nice all round. I cant figure this problem out with my Macbook screen. Regardless of this, I went ahead and pumped up the saturation more and knocked back on the yellow a bit. But there is definately a big difference to what gets posted as to what I see when it arrives at Steves.

Thanks for going through the trouble! Your edit definitely looks oversaturated on my laptop and desktop. I think I should play around with the embedded jpg colour profiles or something. I have also noticed a difference between my shots on the web, and in Photoshop.

The part of South Africa where the photo was taken is a bit dry and yellowish, so the colours (on my PC at least) is already a bit more saturated than they were in real life.

I think you shot the original picture inRAW,and as you were converting it into JPEG you converted it in AdobeRGB coloursrather thanthe sRGB, which ends ina larger colour glamut but not supported by most web browsers. Btw, the Tamron seems to have pulled off the job well ; )

It must look on your monitor like this:
