    Great colors in your photos! How much PP do you need to do to get these colors to "pop" so much?

    Thanks, Ryan. I only did "whole image" edits: lens undistort, crop, constrain gamut (with levels and curves), sharpen, watermark. I think it is the levels and curves that helps assign the gamut efficiently to get the colors to pop. I see you shoot a D7000 right now; that is what I used to take this. I also used Nikon Picture Control set to vivid. Finally, I shoot to 14-bit NEF, which I feel helps produce a more efficient final result when converting back to JPG. (I do not want to start any raw-bit-depth holy wars, but that is my experience.) :-)
