Lago di Ritom

The water of Lago di Ritom has a beautiful blue/greenish colour. This area in the northern part of Ticino is really amazing for a nice day-hike.

Re: Nice colors!

Thank you very much! The shore is out of vegetation because the lake is a reservoir! The water dropped to a lower level, that's why vegetation is absent!Thanks for your vote! Cheers Lo

Is it just me or are the colours so vivid because the saturation is cranked way up? Just curious, not trying to offend.

Re: Saturation?

Hi, I adjusted it a little,It is a little sharpened and slightly more colored, but in a way that it looks almost the same as the original. So there isn't much saturation done here! But I can understand what you mean! Thanks for your comment!, Cheers Lodewijk

Re: Saturation?

Wow, that's really cool then. The lighting is neat. Congrats on a great picture then. (I asked because I don't like a picture quite as much when people make pictures look spectacular simply by cranking the saturation on scenery pictures.)

Re: Saturation?

Hi, yes I understand and I agree. I think adjusting a picture is oke, but when it doesn't look like the original anymore because of saturation or other things, I don't like that!
Thanks for your comments! Cheers Lo
