And there is also a great atmosphere to it, thinking that this was an active volcano, long ago.
Thanks for passing by.

I don't like this green color though I believe it is the real color...

The color is indeed very green. Depending on the time of the day and the clouds, it can be a bright green or a dense green (like it is one the picture).
It's your absolute right to give 7... but I find it rough, also because it is a very special place in Ecuador.
For me it sounds like a vote for a bad picture. You have your reasons. No harm in the end.
And if at some point you had some doubts about me reworiking the colors and stuff, feel free to have a look at others pictures I posted, and you'll see that I like mountains with a natural look.

I always want to ask you: are your coloures on photos real?? or do you have such perfect camera? :):):)
Really amazing..

They are real.
I try to take pictures at sunrise or sunset when the sun gives a warmer color to the landscape, and in particular sunrise when there is lesser mist/condensation in the air.
Then, I often increase a little the contrast to give colors a bit more intensity, because digital cameras most of the time render paler colours that in the actual landscape.
When people print out (the old way) their black & white photos, they always tend to increase a little contrast to have a stronger black. Same principle with colours ;o)
