    Just joined a few days ago. This pic was: D90 with the 18-105 kit lens, shutter was 1/5, ISO was 320.

    Just got my camera in Jan of this year. Having a lot of fun so far. Learning more all the time.

    Thanks!

    Welcome to the forum!

    I like this photo, even though it's a bit too saturated for my personal taste. I get the impression that those trees in the background are tall and majestic, so I'm left wanting to see more of them --maybe not a bad thing :)

    Can you explain? I don't understand where the colors are off. It looks to me just as it did in person when I was there. I'd appreciate more info.

    Thanks!

    Oh and everyone, please feel free to edit my pic to show me how it should look, in your opinion.

    I realize I have a lot to learn.

    Thanks!

    I'm no expert on the matter, but here's what I came up with in photoshop.

    Ok - So it looks like you removed some of the saturation? The trees appears more green. Or maybe a darker green? Thanks!

    Anyone else?

    added dark green photo filter
    adjusted brightness/contrast
    adjusted levels
    adjusted saturation
    adjusted exposure
    added sharpen

    for me the new changes made it easier on my eyes to focus on the photo. It made the water the main focus point and the rest complimenting the water and not vice-versa. but thats just my viewpoint. it's best to hold the two photos side by side and see what you like and dislike in the changes.

    I like what you did, and more importantly, I have learned something by your statement about making it easier to focus on the water.

    Thanks!!
