Hi Ben, i wouild say your AR6 before PS is the most naturalisic, while the last has a bit more pop but I don't care for the sky color quite as much. Your 'printed version deals much more nicely with the trees in the FG, which look jumbled and confused in the other tria, and still look truncated by the frame. I would like to see the trees seperated more from the green clump in the mid distance. I would probably play with them to create a more 3D look, even though they are in the shade.

Thanks Sadja, we go back a way and I always appreciate your candid but respectful comments. You give me a lot of meat to cover here.
On your comment about the pre photoshop version, you must really like subdued images. Perhaps form and content trump color and saturation for your taste. But yes, I pump a bit more for print. I would normally show something between the print and the Photoshopped version on web and save the full Topazed version for print.
On the trees, Topaz popped them a bit. I will show a 100% crop to show what I see in print. Something is always lost on web.
On your comment about hanging it. You are right, it is not great art. I could find 10 or so better images today at the landscape forum, and could buy prints that are better at a local art gallery. But they are not mine.
I have perhaps 3 or 4 landscapes of mine that I like better, so this means this is near my current best. If I golfed, I would no doubt carry a high handicap. Same with photography. It is what it is.
Edit, I don't see that red that shows up in the bark in my print. I also note that on a wide gamut monitor in a non color aware browser, all of these are very over saturated. They look prefect in Safari, horrible in Chrome, and I don't have IE loaded.
