Default To saxo042: Is it very dull?

Thank you, Gunnar, for your kind remarks about this one.

Like yourself, I was quite happy with the composition but I do feel that it's awfully "dull" - a comment also made by Denis (dta). It didn't seem at all dull when I took the picture and I can only suppose that it's been a fault of my processing of the image.

I often think that you can overdo processing by playing around with a picture too much. I seem to remember quite well my few feeble attempts at painting in oils: I would keep adding little bits of colour in an attempt to get a colour right but would eventually end up with something that looked like mud! I thnk repeated and extended attempts at editing photographs can have a similar outcome!

Kind Regards,
