Out of 6 or 7 candidates I had for the challenge, this was the only one I DIDN'T shoot in the morning! I brought my son on a little hike near the house, and caught this as the sun was setting through the trees. Yes, the colors really were that rich in appearance.

Processing: Crop, Channel Mixer to boost the saturation, Dodge and Burn, USM and a secret ingredient... I used an Accented Edges filter then faded it back to about 20% for a softer appearance.

Holy Moley! This is simply stunning. The clarity, the color, the composition...you'd think it was a diamond with all of those "c"'s.

Nice gentle treatment. Good comp.

Very pretty - its appeal coming from the over saturation and pools of blue sky and radiant autumn leaves. Proficiently shot, if a little lacking in any clear focal interest beyond those leaves.

i love the subject, i think it fits the challenge. The open blue on the bottom doesnt do much for me, i would have croped more on the bottom, it draws too much attention to the blurry leaves in the water and makes everything seem out of focus. 8

6: Very nice and if you had cropped this lower so that the reflection was almost all we saw I think this would be nicer
