I read a great blog (suggested by Addam) about how people often push their colors too far in digital processing...and how we should focus more on what is there, what nature presents us, rather than trying to make a scene into something it isn't. I think you've done a great job with sticking to what was true to the scene!
oh dear LeeAnne..... your words make me really happy.... what so so kind comment.... thank you so so much.... i am deeply smiling... again, thank you very !!! Yes, i mostly prefer the softer toning... the pastel toning..... especially in landscape pictures :-)))
