Like the composure, but trunks look over saturated with purple and green color on my monitor.

I think your monitor might need calibrating. The trunks are hues of yellow, some with a bit of magenta. The close one on the right is more neutral. Just calibrated my monitors today. Thanks,

The one on the right looks perfect.
BG looks over done as well.
Back off a little and you have a great shot.

This is pretty much like it came from the camera. The yellow colors from
all the leaves colored the trunks of the aspen. I did take some of the color out of the near big trunk.

I like the composition, but agree that the colors looked a little over-cooked. Mark Cronin makes a good suggestion...back off the saturation a little and I think you've got a good shot!

My monitor is calibrated and I see what the previous poster was describing, though perhaps this is a matter of preference rather than absolute right or wrong.

When I get a number of viewers making a similar observation about one of my photographs, I feel like it does me more good to understand what they see than to try to deny that they see what they see. Perhaps their observation is worth considering. Sometimes I change what I do based on what I heard, and sometimes I decide that I simply disagree with them and follow my own muse.

You got a pretty good shot here. I will agree, just a bit too saturated, but for me not bad really, just pull back on it a bit.

As to calibating monitors, just because you did it, doesn't mean it's calibrated. Often when I calibrate mine, I have to go through the process 2, 3 or 4 times before they actually end up calibrated. I always double check the calibration against a print or two that I know the colors are right on, then compare it to the prints digital version on the monitor.

Flagstaff is a great place for aspens. I shot a bunch there maybe 10 years ago.

A little over saturated maybe, but I like it.

I tried to get to Lockett Meadow about a year ago. I think the road was temporarily washed out?
