Interesting choice to pull the focus in so close while keeping a composition that would suggest that the viewer should pay attention to the distant house. Personally, I find the over-saturation a little jarring, especially with the blown highlights in the clouds and surf, but you haven't lost detail or texture, so I guess there's that.

Hi Steve,

Thanks for your comment. It is nice to hear from someone who does photography by trade. Some people have made a comment that the over-saturation gives it a painting feel. When I took this picture, I only had the camera for a few days and didn't have any background information around photography other than aperture, shutter speed, and ISO as I was more interested in taking pictures of waterfalls. Still learning lots and I am glad to hear your perspective. I have attached the original shot which was cropped and auto-contrasted.  There was no saturation added to it. Looks plain though.

True, it does look rather bland unedited, but you can be more selective in where and how much to push or pull the saturation in an image, rather than just doing a global adjustment. For example, the greens and reds in this image are already slightly more saturated to my eye than the yellows, so I'd be inclined to push the yellows up the most, the reds up slightly and the blues somewhere in between. You could also work to unify the tones a little, so that the image is less polychromatic: a warm yellow or orange tone as a colour cast will de-emphasize the blues and greens while making the yellows and reds pop a bit more.

Thanks for your suggestion. I am going to learn the software in greater depth when I have a chance to isolate the individual colours. I think it falls under selective colour for Photoshop as opposed to tweaking with vibrancy for the entire piece.

You can do it with a number of different tools, but you'll find that the Selective Color adjustment is going to be somewhat limiting. The Hue/Saturation adjustment is much more powerful overall. If you'd like to see it, I took the liberty of downloading your full-res photograph and adding a few adjustment layers to it to see what I could do with it. I can upload it to dropbox and send you a link.

Thanks Steve. I would definitely like to see what you did with it. I looked at the Hue/Saturation and it is something I will learn soon. I don't knowthe function of the bar below the angles or the angles for that matter. However, I will read about it when I have the time.

Thanks for the comment.  I did do a bit of cropping and have been learning something called the rule of thirds.

Awesome! Yeah the Rule of Thirds is a fantastic guide to go by to really add some movement, eye-appeal, better composition to your photography. You used it really well here :)
