    Spring has finally arrived!

    The cathedral on the sky line is 1000 yrs old, bench about 75yr (always been in the family) and the trees planted nearly 40 yrs ago when we moved in.

    Little much on the green saturation I think.
    Too much to comment on otherwise.

    Thanks both of you for taking time out to comment.

    It is wet Spring England - late afternoon light and nitrogen fertiliser! Pretty well out of camera - raw brought to look like back of camera .jpeg. left "as shot" and saturation not touched. Grass needs cutting again!

    Nature is like that with its chlorophyll and all, it goes a little overboard in the spring trying to make up for winter.
    I like these, but the first is the best.

    The saturation slider is not the only control that adjusts saturation. When you tone map you naturally bring back the contrast, but the contrast slider works on both the luminosity and colour channels and also pushes saturation. So does clarity enhance it.
    Although you have no saturated colour in nature, you also can't achieve it in the RGB colour space and so saturated colour is not necessarily wrong. But saturation works by removing other colours to being dominant hues forward. So over-saturated colour tends to have that thin colour look because the variety of colour tends to be "thinned" or reduced, (the blues in the bench and slabs for instance are reduced and the slightly more dominant green hues are brought forward).

    For reference only, the one on the right has much reduced clarity, slightly reduced vibrance, and a boost in the brightness of the lighter tones on the luminosity channel only. It has not less colour but more of a variety of tones:

    A good shot of your garden. I might suggest however that you turn the bench so it is facing into the middle of the view rather than away from it?

    Thanks for taking time to deelop the image. The light is very green on the slabs and bench - filtered through the birch leaves. If I was doing a portrait (a popular backdrop for family and friends) I adjust for the green. These images as I said are virtually straight from camera for a quick post in the "for fun" section. Normally they would be taken right through a workflow through Lightroom. The bench was moved into the sunny patch for me to sit - pictures were an afterthought to prove I use the mower!
