Default Have I got it right yet?

Giving me a +15 leeway for my usual oversaturation, does the processing on this photo look closer to normal? I need to know if I've finally figured out my screen.

I like the compostion, but it still looks oversaturated to me (to be fair, this monitor is dark, so...). I'm not sure but it looks like a blueish cast in the mountain shade...

Looks pretty good Matt. I'd say the sky is still a wee bit oversaturated/underexposed. The blue needs to be a shade brighter overall, but beyond that it looks good and is about the level of saturation I go for in my pictures.

Ween, don't you live in the mountains now? That's perfectly normal.

Definitely looks better than some of your recent images. Now, just figure out how to do some distortion correction and that image will look great!

But I'm trying to process my pictures LESS!

...No comment.

Alright, so I'll just desaturate the blue channel and maybe lighten it up a bit, then undo the damage my 24mm has done, and I've got it!

I dont see any problems. looks great. Never thought of any of your photos as "over processed" or "heavily" processed though.

While I won't venture out on a limb and call it super blue, there is a drastic increase in blue in the backgrounds of your photos... not super blue, just more blue is visible. A nice change.

And I don't have a lot of shade in my shots (yet) to compare, but...damn blue mountains. If anything, aren't these CO mountains supposed to be purple, as in Purple Mountain Majesties?!? Or maybe I don't wake up early enough...

On a sunny day there should be some blue in any shadow area, this is perfectly normal. On a sunny day, a shadow area is not illuminated by the sun but rather by the blue sky.

I am going to take this the other way, What setting is your camera on Landscape? I know I don't have mine set the way I want yet as what I liked for winter isn't making me happy now. Going to kick it up a notch and set it to Landscape. Your 24 MM didn't do a thing, But tilting it up did.

So is my 40D but I think what Richard's asking is what your Picture Style is set on? With my XT, it didn't matter if it was set to B&W, you just got the RAW image still in color, but I noticed in my 40D that if I had Picture Style set to B&W, I got a B&W RAW file (which, if I'm not mistaken, can be switched to another Picture Style if you're editing your RAW shot in DPP).

Exactly, getting it out of the camera and having it close makes for less work later on. I have a love hate thing going with DPP, Like working it but moving files sucks, Just me more likely.
