Jeremy, I have been criticized before for my mountain water colour. It is true that the input/outputs are adjusted, but the processed image is not so far from the unprocessed, attached.
Scott, my criticism wasn't of your processing and I'm sorry if it appeared as if it was. I just think the gaudy colours, natural or not, ruin what could be an interesting shot. They drag my eye to the bands across the upper part of the image and it's difficult to force myself to look at the rest of it.
