I try to avoid saturating colors in shots of homes and commercial buildings as presenting a realistic photo is much better and acceptable than a photo that looks artistic or has the ‘overcooked’ look from being processed in software. However, when taking shots of surrounding features like golf courses, mountains and lakes, I think then it is OK to enhance the photo to capture attention. Today’s photo shoot in Broken Top illustrates my point. You be the judge. It was a cloudy day and starting snowing soon after this shot, so to be able to rescue an otherwise great scene, I think is perfectly acceptable.
In this shot, I enhanced the colors and greened up the yellow grass effectively providing a ‘summer’ shot.
