Hi all.

I'm just wondering what you guys think of this. Is the processing overdone? too much saturation?

To me it doesn't look natural, but I like it like this a lot.
Depends what you want to use this image for...

This image is just for personal use.

Reckon I should drag the saturation back down a tad?

The sky does look a little over... specially in the reflection. But that is a really nice shot. I like it either way. :) And you're not helping the fact that I really want to get to Australia... ;)

LOL this is Canberra mate... You want a photography trip head to Tasmania or somewhere more photogenic.

Thanks I'll re edit it now. :)

For me this is certainly acceptable but is right on the line of being over-processed. I think I might tone it down (brightness wise mostly) just a tad. :)

Very nice work!

Like Kenny said, maybe a tad on the bright side but not overdone...

What do YOU think of it? Unless you're selling it that's really all that matters.

Well, any part of Australia is just awesome for me! I've been fascinated with that country since in the womb. ;)

@theague: Thanks I just wanted to see how it looked on someone with a somewhat calibrated screen as mine aren't.. So just wanted to make sure it doesn't actually look terrible when it looks fine here.

@jbdavies: Haha, well hurry up and get over here then. :)

I like my shots like this. Very bright and blue, contrasty.

Too bad we can't bump up the contrast and saturation in real life!
