Within a 50 mile radius there are probably 200 falls. This one is right beside a highway and you'd never know it is there--most are zipping by with their windows up, if only they'd slow down and listen they'd hear it.

Lovely scene but some of the greens seem a bit oversaturated for me, or could be the tablet I'm viewing on.

Thanks Rosey! Gene PM'd me with a similar sentiment, so maybe you guys are right. I purposefully left it this way because that's how I remember the scene, but it may look better warmer. There are blue flowers at the top of a lot of the greens which I purposefully over saturated that may be contributing to the issue.

Sometimes the colours are that way. At times I've had comments on skies (not here), but they really were as blue as in the image.

Maybe the niggling thing about the grass is not so much the saturation of the green, it is probably pretty lush, but on my display it appears to fall a little too much toward the cyan side of green, not the yellow side of green. This may be exactly how it appeared, given the time of day, the lighting and the high-altitude atmosphere through which light was scattering, maybe. So, it may be perfectly accurate, but not "normal" or "expected" in terms of the typical green memory color most of us have in our brains.

Thanks Kirk. As usual you summarized exactly what I was trying to say.

So, for the sake of argument let's assume that it is an accurate representation of that mornings light..... The question is whether to show it as I did - correct to the moment, or change it to what folks are expecting?

It is a beautiful image Jon!

I am not a photography purist. My goal is to process an image that is appealing to an audience, and that goal trumps color depiction accuracy.

I think you could have some additional fun with this image - have you considered using the Camera Raw filter to locally shift the white balance to create a greater sense of depth and richness? With your image I made a layer copy, used the Camera Raw filter to warm up the white balance and boost clarity, and then layer-masked the result with a large soft brush to limit the adjustment to the foreground slope. I really like the result of the near being warmer, but falling away to the blue cast in your original image. Just a thought. :)
