    The pic was taken at the Edinburgh Castle,Edinburgh, Scotland, UK

    anyone can teach me photoshop elements 5?

    which pic is the better edited one? both pics were edited using the auto settings.
    I think the original one is good enough. But if I'm forced to choose the edited one, I would go with the Picasa ones with a slight preference towards the 2nd one.

    I don't know what you did but I have been quite impressed with "I feel lucky"

    Looks like you might have bumped the colour temperature a wee bit too high... contrast as well. Look at the clouds.
    There are no bad photographs, just different perspectives. ;)

    agree... the original one looks better. the ps'd ones look fake. the picassa ones are better than the elements ones.

    You have to be aware that sometimes picasa's effects are not rendered out when you save the edits to a new file. Most notably the sharpen effect.

    Nope.. the original is not flat and dull at all. It's just natural.

    i use both. picasa is free though, and so many times faster than ps. there are some more advanced features that you need ps for like dodge and burn. i work in picasa first and if that doesn't help then ps.
    Many are culled, few are chosen

    use Picasa if you want a fast and easy way of enhancing your pictures. some of the presets are good. i haven't tried Elements yet, but i'm sure it's not as easy as Picasa.

    Yes picasa is a fast and easy way of making changes to the original pic. After selection then I usually switch to photoshop. The changes in picasa are not applied to the picture unless it is saved as another file, as you've done. But sometimes the changes will not be saved. It usually doesn't happen until you've got a big enough library of photos.

    As for your current pics i prefer the original and the picasa versions, but really i don't think it matters which software you use.
