    What do you think? Any comments or critique would be appreciated.

    I also need some help - I took some other photos, but (like the photo I used for the wallpaper) a large majority of the colour in the darker grass got greyed out by the camera. If anyone is willing to restore the colours (if it's possible), the 2 other photos are here: http://cid-c1a4c92e3cafc62f.skydrive.live....e.aspx/Pictures

    Wow that's beautiful! Where did you take the photo?
    The coloring is just stunning too!

    Gerringong, NSW, Australia. We've got a family house down there (right on the beach!). These hills actually drop off directly into the ocean as cliffs [​IMG]. Most of the NSW South Coast looks similar to this, all the way from the start of Illawarra Escarpment.

    I wasn't actually intending to enhance the colour, though I was forced to due to colour loss in the photo (like I said in the first post). I'm actually pretty pleased with how it turned out [​IMG]

    Why does this remind me of Windows XP for some reason? [​IMG]

    Anyway, nice job! I hope to see more artwork.

    B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L Pic, realy awesome [​IMG]. In my Opinion, only thing that could be better would be if there wouldn't be any railings on the Pic but meh...it also looks already damm nice [​IMG]!

    Btw, @Windows 7 default Wallpaper: Actually, this came also in my mind. And Microsoft makes a competition, where you can send in your Pic, and the Winners one will be the official default Windows 7 Wallpaper for Switzerland. Nice, huh [​IMG]?

    Blue-K and UnseenHero: Thanks for the comments [​IMG]. Nice idea, but I think it's only for photos taken in Switzerland (from the photos that I've seen already)...
