    Here's an image from our trip to Napa Valley this past November. This is a shot of a Roche Winery vineyard we went horseback riding in--when I proposed. It was a difficult shot for me--taken about 4 in the afternoon facing west. The sun really washed out the sky, and it was a hazy afternoon anyway. Any suggestions on how to bring the colors on the hills come out a little better?

    I tried pushing the contrast, darkening it a bit, and bringing up the saturation....I'm not sure I like the result. Thoughts?

    If you post the original I could mess around with it, then let you know what I found works. =)

    I much prefer the original to the postprocessed version, I must say. Though increased saturation is ok on the hills in the mist, it is way overdone among the vines, and the green of the lawn in between the vines hurts the eyes. It sure looks like a very difficult exposure, what with the hazy sunshine and the mist in the air.
    I can't come up with any other post-processing version but I'm as curious as yourself now, mountainlander, to what others may do to this photo. :)
