I was raining while I took this. I like the quality of the light. A boost in saturation to bring up the greens.

Post challenge - Thanks to everyone for all the great comments and support through the little DQ controversy.

The original blue is a great shot and I hope we see more from him.

Very nice. I love making pictures when it rains, the colours (sometimes) are so beautifully saturated, like in your picture here.

Oh how I love this beautiful photo. I love taking pictures when its barely raining too. There's nothing like it for making colors vibrant and pretty. Congratulations on honorable mention.

I really like this shot (guess you did too since you entered it) The setting, the colors, the mimicking steeples - just very interesting and made me want to study it more.

Oddly, the details lost to the smoothing don't hurt this image for me, it looks like a pastel painting. Love the colours.

Soft and surreal. Very beautiful scene.

stunning location and wonderfully captured and delivered - the colors are intense but maintain a natural feel

Scarbrd? David? This is so incredibly beautiful. I really love it. Do you mind explaining to me in a PM just how to achieve this lovely effect with post processing? I have often wondered how to get this kind of effect. I would very much appreciate it if you would share your secret with me. Another one of your images that I love is "Norwegian Dream" Did you use the same processing?
Regards
Fred

A little heavy on the color saturation. Still a 7.
