    I was amazed at how colorful this photo was straight from the camera. I have not edited it yet and was wondering if I even should. I thought the colors were so neat, maybe a bit overbearing, but neat. Advice on where to go next would be awesome! Should I tone it down a bit or should I emphasize whats going on? Thanks a lot folks!

    Oh yeah, click the bar to view the full sized image. It gets rid of some of the fuzziness that way.:thumbup:

    That IS very nice!

    I'd love to see what you can make of it after a little processing! Nice shot!

    yeah I suppose before digital, the darkroom was as far as editing went. It was more about the photo itself and exposure than "add sharpen mask blah blah blah" haha:lol:

    I dont see how the colors are too brilliant. They are nice, but almost everything could use some PP. Worth a shot.

    I think it might be the frisbee, berries, and grass, or rather the contrast, (don't know if that's the right word,) between those colors that was catching my eye in that respect. My computer screen is also ultra bright!lol:lol:

    what sort of post processing would you recommend mark, I have CS4 but I am pretty lost beyond hue, saturation, contrast, brightness and stuff like that

    well yes, it is pretty colorful, i guess i just expected more framing, i mean, for a snapshot its great, but again, hoping for some more elements, its well exposed however, its sharp, so again, nothing to fix, i just feel like you could do other things with it, well maybe not, considering it all participates to the picture.

    Idk, i guess i was hoping for more

    maybe try toning the luminance of the grass down a bit... some fill light on the berries... hard to say w/out actually doing it...

    I am not to fond of the color of the grass and the fact it matches the Frisbee.

    It has few colors, and the ones that are there are a bit overpowering and seem a bit unnatural (to me anyways, I'm partial to dark green grass). I would try some PP on it and see what comes of it.
