    Thanks.
    certainly an interesting composition nevertheless, and lovely greens! The blues though.... they could have been warmer.

    hmz...seems there are others who find dis interesting. no offense though, but IMHO personally i think it can be better wif a little cropping? can't seem to find a focus point for this shot. maybe u can try to crop it to the middle 3rd of the pic? wif the sole tree in the bottom RH and the bird slightly above? might make it less distracting. u can consider turning this pic into B&W and tone up the contrast. cheers mate.

    Lunas,

    I just adjusted saturation and sharpness in Pshop.

    Thanks guys for all the comments. I'm using a laptop to edit the picture so that's probably why I thought the blue was adjusted properly already.

    There is no such thing as "proper adjustment" or right and wrong adjustments, only good and bad.

    Whats good is always right, proper or improper.

    And whats bad is always wrong no matter how proper.

    In this pic, the sky is interesting, the palm tree is a sore thumb. If it is just sky and birds it might worth some look.

    As it is, it could have been shot by an unthinking machine auto triggered by the birds' flapping wings perhaps.

    So it is a long way away before you start thinking proper or improper adjustments, if that is the right thing to think about at all.

    I think the tree adds to the composition, providing asymmetryical balance to the whole picture.
