For a fine art landscape image such as this the colors are right on in my opinion. For any of you who believe the colors are "off" I say this. Is Velvia film true to life color? No. Does a normal human eye see colors the same way as through a polarizer? No. I was truly amazed at the colors of this land, especially when viewed through a polarized lens. These colors may be bumped up slightly but it conveys the true feelings of being there and makes the image pop. Just to see the colors in the rising steam being reflected from the bright afternoon sun was truly amazing. #2963942
