    I need and would appreciate your honest opinions.. are these shots Overcooked?.. both shot with G3 - Lumix 14-45.. I put them in the Oven at 375 degrees for 1hr and 45 minutes and basted every 1/2 hr or so..... how do they taste? (you can't hurt my feelings) I want to know.. thanks :smile:

    Gives me the feel of "being there." I could smell the salt air.

    Tone-mapped? LR4?

    They feel a bit overdone to me. An overall sense of depth and contrast is missing.

    I like the second a bit better, but both look good. I've always preferred very saturated colors - had several Fuji bridge cameras before going :43:.

    Thanks folks.. I like COLORS as well.. sometimes I go overboard.. for me it's hard to get VIVID colors without over cooking..

    i like the 2nd one, the 1st one is a bit too much... unless you're aiming for that surreal look.

    Agreed, No. 1, looks a bit overdone. (and the horizon looks off to me).

    I think the first one looks a bit unnatural. I feel like sometimes you can get away with it if there are no people, but in that shot the people look unnatural.

    What is meant by overcooked anyways?
