So much green.

the oversaturated red kills it for me. take that same shot into Photoshop (or whatever), turn down the reds, and the texture of the mountain appears, like some kind of magic.

@ Rasidel Slika: You've obviously never been to Uluru. The rock changes colour dramatically between black and bright orange within a few minutes at sunrise and sunset, and that red colour is REAL. I've been there, and was staggered at the amount of colour change in such a short time. The only way that picture could have been more spectacular was if it had been raining at the same time. After rain, water just cascades off the rock in huge waterfalls. Now THAT would be something to see!
@500mL: Fantastic close-up on that dragonfly. It's amazing and revolting all at the same time!
And btw, I don't think Cyberwlf was a finalist in the Nikon Photo Contest -- he just provided a link to the winning shots.
@N.C.F.: Now there's a young lady with attitude!

yes I haven't been there - I never said I didn't think the red color was real. Just that in the picture, it's blown out.

That wasn't who I was referring to (but his wife is certainly smoking hot). Someone used to post pics he was taking of models all around what looked like Miami. Very creative choices of location and poses. I've spent an hour looking back through this thread to find who it was but couldn't find an image. I do remember him saying he'd hang around but just not post model shots because of all the negative PM.

I've been waiting a year to get the sun in the right place and tonight the colours weren't good but I did get a cyclist instead.
