Ok, so the title isn't so creative, but you must admit, it is...red. To those viewing my site in Safari, it probably appears oversaturated. It may even appear oversaturated to those of you with PC's. The oversaturation is more the result of overcontrast rather than a ton of saturation increase.

I tried to get the levels right on this several times, and I don't know if I'm totally happy with it...a bit too light, I think, but I don't know. Now that I look at it, I probably should have not squeezed the saturation quite so much, but I wasn't originally planning to have near this much contrast, and already had the levels set. Anyways, enjoy!

a beautiful barn! red just like my grandma's house . . . used to be . . . right. it's still awesome! I love the hue and the contrast with the green plants infront. I also love the shadows on the right side.

and thanks for the reminder about painting my grandma's house! :P

It certainly is contrasty, but I like it that way because it brings out the roughness on the barn wall. The red looks great on my PC.
