Early morning photo at a nearby park. After about a mile walk, I finally found the side of the lake that had the sunlight shining in from over my shoulder. I was hoping to get there before the wind picked up.
Processing: convert from raw, levels, slight saturation (colors pop due to intensifier and CP filter on camera), contrast, sharpen, save for web.

Post Challenge:
Here is the original image:
'' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/25000-29999/29770/120/424849.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/25000-29999/29770/120/424849.jpg', '/') + 1) . ''
I guess I bumped the saturation and contrast a bit too much.

Thanks for all the votes and comments. I am working to find that happy medium between enough saturation and too much.

Thanks again for all the comments.

Goodness! What colors! The framing with the branch above is a nice touch. Great lighting too!

An ok shot, but way oversaturated. Would crop a little off the bottom though, a little branch is peaking out from the bottom left corner.

Very vivid color; the blue looks a little too saturated to be real.

A little oversaturated and shoreline would be better a little higher or lower. Noice shot though.

Spectacular but I feel the colours are rather over-saturated in this case and the effect is a bit over the top.
