THAT MAGIC time of day – almost night… this first shot is ordinary day time – NO color enhancement.

The second shot was taken at twilight. I was sitting here at the computer and looked out the window and noticed the unusual coloring on the tree across the street. Again, this is with NO photo color enhancement. The tree was just glowing!


The 3rd shot of the same tree is the result of just clicking on color enhancement… if I hit it a few more times, the tree would be a bright red. There are a lot of bloggers who use color enhancement especially this time of year. I do not but just wanted to see what would happen. I guess I ended up wondering what is the point in faking the color… it really doesn’t look better. But then I prefer the beauty in nature as it is – just wait until the right time of day. Notice the lavender/ pinkish sky? Natural.


Which do you prefer?

I love the first picture. I just got home and was too late to see color like that on my vacation.

I like the top, but I've noticed that some of what one can do with color enhancement buttons looks like what one experiences on hallucinogens.

Enjoyed all these photos, Possum, and agree with you on not changing them. Some times, enhancement does help a photos, but when you can see nature's beauty like this there's no need to alter it.
