    Recently decided to get back into photography after several years, sold my old Canon gear and got an OM-D.

    This is my first post here, so consider this a test (grin).

    This is the Coosawattee River near Ellijay Georgia USA. Please comment.

    Welcome! A very fine shot. My preference is for a slightly more saturated image, making the colors pop, but that's a personal thing. :thumbup:

    Thanks everyone

    This was taken in raw, OM-D with kit 12-50, processed in Lightroom 4.2.

    I'm just getting re-started in photography, trying to remember some of the Photoshop skills from years ago (grin). This time I just raised the "vibrance" in Lightroom a bit and tweaked the other controls. Does everyone think the saturation should be higher? My monitor isn't calibrated so I'm not sure I'm seeing the colors as they really are.

    Here's another one from same place, same lens and similar processing:

    Ellijay04s.

    I plan to re-process this one in Photoshop using L*A*B mode curves, if I can remember how. Should be able to bring up the oranges a bit more. Anyone suggest anything else?

    Thanks everyone for the comments.

    LR will do saturation for individual colours for you down in the HSL controls. Also useful for reducing the orange sodium glare in night city scenes!

    Nice shots btw, looks like a lovely place.
