    Interesting saturation... what software did you use?

    Thank you ALL: RJ - it is a bit "oversaturated" - I use Picnik.com. I just ordered LR3 after trial use. I also pulled out the shadows and hightlight a bit to focus on the colors around the water. Any suggestions??

    Yes, it is bit over saturated. However it seems as though many of the photos that are receiving positive comments here are over saturated. While people like vivid colors, many dedicated professionals prefer more realistic colors. In Lightroom I use the Develop Tab. Then I use the White Balance Auto. Sometimes I do not like its results and will use the Reset. The next thing I do is use Auto Tone (even if I like or do not like the Auto White Balance). Again sometimes I will Reset and back up to undo the Auto White Balance. On the left side of the page the steps you are using is shown. If you do not like what you have done just click on the step that is before the change or changes you do not want to have. There are other ways to do this. I am just trying to keep it simple while getting you used to some of the more simple features. Next I go to Saturation and Vibrance. I find that adding 1 to 16 for these results in a nice level of enhancement without blowing it out as is the case your photo here and several others that have been uploaded here. My last adjustment is Clarity. Again if it is needed I usually go between 1 and 16. There are also adjustments for more than 500 specific lenses, as well as noise removal features. To try to explain them and other features is getting more advanced than needed at this point. I hope this will be of help to you.

    Actually I like the effect you have here even though it is way over saturated. Looking at it does not hurt my eyes or cause me to only look at one particular spot.

    Happy Friday RJ & ALL! GREAT feedback RJ. Sorry, I hurt your eyes...LOL. I'll ease up on the saturation. JO

    You misread what I wrote. It says it does not hurt my eyes. I like it the way it is.
