love it.. not only hugely colourful but great texture in it too.

Overall on the subject of 'most colourful' I think it's important to be able to strike a balance between colourful and too colourful. Playing with the saturation and/or vibrance sliders is all well and good, but not if you end up with something that looks like the result of a bad trip (unless that's the look you set out to achieve of course).

I was going to go for the obvious 'kids in funderland' shot, but this is quite colourful and not as obvious

cambo, that's a bit crazy. Yerman in the middle is coming out of my screen! Cool.

I just realised that I mostly have the saturation slider at -40. I'm finding that it's lovely to have colour that doesn't slap you in the face, that makes you appreciate it more for its subtlety. I also like rich colours, which I think are different from bright ones:

It really is quite something in the flesh, as it were. There are so many different things going on it's impossible to take everything in at once...after I took this, I was politely but firmly informed of the no photography rule and asked to put my camera away.

I generally have the saturation slightly negative as well and never above +5.

There are other ways to get nice deep colours, that to my mind are more natural that the saturation slider.

Personally, I'm a fan of slapping people with colour.

This may be because when they are printed, they're not quite as bright as on my monitor

Not the most garish colour pic I have, but I like the colours here.

Some nice shots here.

Took this one in Florida last summer, very little pp, these were the actual colours as a storm was just clearing!
