River Valley

We were out exploring forest service roads last week in the Oregon Coast Range by Florence. I loved the burnt stump and the Fiddle Creek valley below and this is what I got. For those following along, this is where the hummingbird just popped up, just to my left. Is it over-processed? It looked cool when I did it, but now I am not sure.....

I tend to sometimes overprocess mine as well. But I don't think this one is to overdone. Great viewpoint though.

There are so many elements in this photo you can gaze at it and keep coming back and see something different each time. Very nice.

I think it's a beautiful shot of a beautiful spot. As for it being over-processed I think it just depends on what you were aiming for. It's just enough extra to make it seem like fairy tale land, because one thinks nothing this perfect could possibly exist. It really is beautiful.

I think 2sweetnsaxy says it best

I often wonder if I over process or under process for that matter but I try to stay with my rule of - if it feels right, then it's all good

this photo makes me smile
so it's all good

I agree with a comment above- it depends upon what you are going for. This looks like some sort of make believe land with hobbits and elves. Nice effect.
