    Hey guys, let me know what you think about this one... I went to the beach again a couple days ago and this was one of my favorites. I also added my Photography logo at the bottom, I'd like to know your thoughts on it as well... Thanks for your CC! :)

    hmm... after looking at the posted image, looks like image shack or my jpeg compressed my logo too much. Lemme make a few changes and see what happens...

    Is this a HDR? It is a bit too saturated for me. The composition is nice though.

    I love the composition, but agree that the saturation is too much for my taste. What does it look like B&W?

    The original one is the best looking one IMO. The desaturated one looks washed out and bleh.

    I get a lot of people telling me my pictures are oversaturated... to my eyes, I love the more colorful look. But many people I suppose don't agree. So these opinions help a ton!

    I love your first one. Colorful is better I believe.

    Im going with the general consensus. Im a newbie and think that the "saturated" one is beautiful. I love the colors.

    It is definitely an HDR candidate, eh TJ K?

    It is quite an excellent photo with a subject, varying background and a nice foreground railing. Only thing I could find to really critique is that it might look better slightly rotated so that the corner of the building is straight up and down?
