Thought I would mention the saturation point so the conversations didn't get side tracked. This was processed in Capture One and C1 allows levels control and I did use levels to re-map the tones a bit.
Honestly I totally don't care whatever you do to an image.
The result is what counts.
There is always this line between doing too much or too little, between kitsch and boredom where good art lives.
I like your images, though sometimes they are a bit strong for my personal taste. Really - only a bit - and only sometimes.
In the image here I think it is wonderful and works perfectly.
