Japanese garden in a small town
Posted By: Ash, 08-26-2009, 07:05 AM

Our local university has a nicely manicured Japanese Garden, commonly used for weddings, and is now starting to bloom quite nicely.

For your enjoyment...

2 and 5 are really nice. I love the red bridge there.

That's a very pretty garden. Go easy on the saturation though.

On second look, they actually do look oversaturated here - not quite as much whilst being edited on PS. Will look into that...

Beautiful garden.
The color of the sky makes it look like you were using a polarizer.

Colors are a little oversaturated, but pictures are still nice. Try to make less wide angle pictures, it might be interesting.

I did use a polariser Frank, but added a little more colour in PP.
I've taken that on board Zav, particularly when my web image conversion does boost contrast somewhat.

Thanks for the comments.
