Hey there guys and gals!!

It has been some time since I visited the forums! I have been busy buying PC components for my next build; This laptop has seen better days and using LR 4 is really slowing it down :(

Guess LR 4 needs hyperthreading or something, hence why I am literally going for "broke" with an i7 3770 build; wish me luck, it has been years since I built a PC LOL

Anyways on to the real deal! This photo that I will share isn't gonna "wow" a lot of people, but ironically, my university wants me to share it with them... do you think it is oversaturated? I didn't really touch the saturation or the vibrance here, but I guess I made a mistake by choosing Vibrant Camera Calibration Profile.

I want to make sure this passes you guys/gals before I submit it to my university and be able to save some face LOL

Not only about saturation, but anything you see that I may re-edit and/or improve.

Remember, this may be a boring shot if anything, but it did impress my university enough for them to want it; so no saying "try a different angle", "should've been closer", etc, just tell me what I may do in this shot in post.

Thanks!! I will be active here again soon enough!!

Looks nice, but yes, it's a little much on the color. Tone it back 2 notches, decrease a little contrast and you'll have a great shot.

Hope this helps,

Yes, tone down the saturation a little bit and I agree you'll have a nice shot. :)
