    Here's a few more shots I took at a local park. There wasn't much to shoot this time of year.

    Interested in comments regarding the coloring. My main concern of this set is #3 below. I couldn't get the overpowering green from a leaf in the upper left muted out while still allowing the petals of the flower to really pop.

    And #2 isn't great, I took it quickly to catch all the ducks with their tails up :)

    I messed with 3, I assume you did not use a flash just relied on natural light? Anyway here is what I came up with...

    looks like I might have over sharpened, but you get the idea. I adjusted contrast/brightness, sharpened, and levels.

    No flash, just natural light (and it wasn't really bright either, sort of overcast with small rays of light).

    I might try to sharpen and adjust the levels a bit more (especially the greens).
