I agree, for my taste, it's overdone, but it may very well have been exactly what you were going for. It looks more like a cartoon than a photograph to me :p

it has a neat sorta feel to the image with it being over saturated, I kinda like it, without it, the image doesnt do much for me, if it was a normal exposed shot I would pass right over it, but the colors kinda grab ya,, nice effect for this shot

I like it, except for the color shift. If you can correct the shift, but leave the saturation it might be a lot better.

Just my opinion but it looks like crap... what were you aiming for? Get a polarizer if you like the sky deep blue


I know, right? I'm just sayin'...

i like the effect. it emphasizes different things in the image than you would normally focus on.

It looks like everythig had a yellow cast over it. The sand is overly yellow, the skin tones are way off. The sky actually works for me though. You just need to pull out the yellow and I think it will get a lot better. When the saturation got pushed up it over-emphasizes the colors (obviously) and if the color ballence is off the oversaturation pushed it off even farther.

Much better. It now has an "illustration" feel to it that I like.
