Welcome Owen. Its not a bad shot just a little overprocessed. the modification by D8daz shows what a good photo you took just you need to ease back a little on the processing. This is often easier said than doen as pushing the limits can be adictive with some effect and difficult to judge. Its all a matter of personal taste in the end.

Hi Owen, welcome to EPZ.

Youve got a few comments on this shot already, - so you know its good enough to get attention, which is a good thing.

You have a good eye for a scenic shot, and this is nice, especially with the river leading into the bottom. The exposure of the fields is good, though a little bright, - especially considering the clouds are burned out (they have no detail) at the top

Its extremely vibrant, and though this can make an image "pop", it can also be a little too much, such that it causes the individual colours to "glow" or bleed into other colours. Theres a little of this happening here, and the mod by Daz, and my mod both attempt to tone this down. Dont know if youre camera made it like this, or youve processed it for this effect.

So heres some things you need to check:

Is your monitor calibrated? If not, assuming you have some version of Photoshop loaded, look for Adobe Gamma in Control Panel on a PC, and run it. This will make sure you are seeing the image the same way as anyone else with a calibrated monitor.

Check you camera settings, - is it set for high saturation, high vibrance, or another mode that boosts colours - if so, try shooting with either another programme mode, or reduce the colour, - you can set this after in Photoshop either way.

I hope you find this helpful,
