Taken with a Carl Zeiss Jena Tessar 50mm f/2.8, which excels in capturing vibrant neutral colors. Lets see everyone’s take on this.

Nice image - my attempt with DT4.4.2

Attempt to create a bit of drama. Lots of color and shadows. Only marginally interesting thing in the xmp is the use color zones to limit the pink/red a bit.
Such a beautiful image - made it easy to work with. I hope I did it justice.
Sometimes I like to photograph abstract reflections. This scene captured my eye for that sort of interpretation. Jackson Pollock move over.

My take? Over the top, likely.
[ update ] -
I just realized this is in ROMM RGB (ProPhoto) space, not sRGB. ROMM is my default since I’m usually further editing images in a bitmap editor and I forgot to change it for this JPG.
First quick play in GIMP.
thanks for posting
I had some fun playing with colours. Thanks for sharing!
A more extreme version of this image!
Here’s my try to keep vibrant colors without oversaturating, also tried to keep depth:
My version looks like
@qmpel’s, with a dreamlike aspect
I would vote for this by Iphilpot.
Len’s blurring of the mirrored part makes it less apparent that the foliage moved during the exposure and never created a total contrast to the ‘restless’ part in the water.
vibrant neutral colors
Can vibrant colors be neutral?
Sorry, poor choice of words. By ‘neutral’ I meant no color cast or shifting of colors. For example, my Hexanon 52mm f/1.8 tends to produce a cooler image, and my Helios 58mm f/2 produces warmer colors. I don’t perceive any color cast from this CZJ lens.
