I've taken this photo so many times in the past. Finally I get to submit it here at DPC.

Canon 28-105mm at 55mm.

Shot in RAW and converted using EVU. Lowered exposure by 1/2 stop.

In PS7: 10D sharpener action. Desaturated greens and yellows, but left just a little. Adjusted brightness and contrast a little to bring out a little more detail in the trees.Cloned out some bird poo on the roof shingles, a little burning here and there, slight crop, resize and USM and soft focus.

The angle of the photo just seems boring. Good use of colors though and nice, clean photo.

I'm sure you know how much I love this picture. I think the flowers would have the better object to desaturate.

Fairly average, the color part(s) aren't very interesting. Makes me look all over the photo for what _is_ interesting, and I fail to do so.
