Now that the sun is retreating from the northern hemisphere not everybody is on the lucky position of Gordon who is enjoying spring season, vivid colors and everything just now!
With the weaker sun I find it constantly harder to get something colorfull infront of my lens (apart from leaves). So I find myself upping the color-saturation of my pics and doing some other postprocessing to intensify the last remaining colors out there.
Today I found an interesting subject colorwise and did a little tweaking as there was only gray sky to take the photo. So enjoy, and keep your eyes peeled for any autumn/winter colors...

This is a great graphic image mate. I like this sort of thing a lot. You've got a good eye to have spotted it in the first place. Kudos.

Zorro.

Nice shot! Are the bits that are white naturally that way?

Hi Thomas - a really pleasing & interesting pic I think! Well done.

Yes, all of us in the southern hemisphere are eagerly looking forward to clear days and lots of good light :)

Very nice Thomas! Love the colours in that it really brings it back to life as winter approaches!

Although if it snows, I will seriously be so happy! Want to get planty photos when it snows since it hardly ever snows much here now! (Global Warming does not exist, CO2 is doing nothing!!!)

Could I ask the simple question, viberence and saturation, both are in Adobe lightroom and seem to have a similar effect but what is the main difference?
