    I really like the colors in this one, but it might be a bit too dark. What do you think?

    I didn't crop it in order to maintain the same aspect ratio.

    I like the colour of the sky. I think it could have been better if the cactus was either to the left or the right. It's nice though.

    I have pictures like that, too, but I like this one the most.

    The colors look flat IMO, need some thing like grain or colors to more saturated

    Oh. I though the colors were really good, just too dark.

    I'll see if I can make it better in Photoshop.

    Monitors just do not do justice to most photos. I have a new LCD at home and personally prefer the look of photos on LCD. Do not like glossy whites myself.

    I also use an LCD. On my screen the photo appears just a tiny bit dark.

    Smidge dark for me too mate. I don't think I would increase the saturation much tho - I like the colours as they are - I'd use levels personally.

    I've already edited the levels some, but I tried editing saturation too(I undid it of course) and it didn't look too good. I guess that only more level edits will work.. I'll see if I can make it look better.

    I like the colours in the 2nd one more, it looks great. The 1st one was a little dark.

    I would also like to see one where the cactus isn't smack bang in the middle.
