Ok - if it wasnt a very roundabout and mean thing to do to make the point, I would remove all of your favourites so that this completely stood out - because it does!!! I love the whole composition, the contrast between the lilacs and magentas and the greens, and all of the textures. The mists and mountains are beautiful
yeah, may be a monitor issue. i've never calibrated my monitor and to be honest, the colour looks dramatic yes, but not unrealistic. anyway, i guess because i just finished reading Joe Cornwells "First Light" today, a landscape photographer who does not digitally process his images, and seeing the amazing and dramatic colour he captured it was certainly not a stretch of the imagination to think that hougaard could have captured something like that as well.
