There's no doubt that these are all pretty well 'pumped up' with color regardless what operating system you use. I think #3 is the most realistic. In #1, the turquoise ground shrubs and the lavender colored sandstone are very odd.

Depends, a judgement call.


Gotta' agree with you there. (Surpised, skibum5? ;-)

A photograph that purports to look exactly like real thing looked, in an objective way, will always be inferior to the real thing since it consists of less than the original experience. Even the most astounding, astonishing, "perfect" composition of that supposedly "real" scene, will have the same issue.

The goal of a great photograph is not to literally recreate the real - which is impossible anyway. I might be to evoke a something of the original subject, but perhaps even more it is about expressing the photographer's view of that subject in a way that tells us something interesting about how the photographer saw the world and about how me might see it as well.

It is hard for me to be consistent about this, but this explains why I can't exactly dismiss a different interpretation, even one that seems overly saturated - though I can be honest about my own response to it.

yes, and to even further, even the smells of pines in the air, bubbling brook, calling birds, honeysuckle on the air, smell of the salt spray, wet meadow, a cool breeze, warming sun, lots is missing even beyond just the plainly visible

The first two seem too "nuclear" to me, indeed, but may be its my monitor. Really like the last two.
