I’ve taken a few photos with camera phones which have a similar look. Very small lense plus pretty simple photo compression (and “auto correction” of colours) will do this kinda thing.

I like it anyway.

What was done to the top one to make it look so horrid. Someone needs to stay away from photo editing.

It looks like some severe saturation boost. If the photographer hasn’t manually boosted the saturation, the program used to take the photos certainly has. I imagine the actual scene looked more like the second image.

Top one looks like an a backdrop for an amateur production of ‘South Pacific’.

To be technically correct, no photograph is a 100% faithful representation of the scene it contains. A photograph is a function of the systems used to record and process the information, and the judgement of the person operating those systems.

This is especially true of digital photography in which the standard JPEG output of almost all digital cameras is designed to be “punchy” and as a result has the default contrast and saturation boosted quite a lot. Additionally both film and digital imaging systems have different colour response to the human eye, though digital is getting closer every year.

If it’s true that no adjustments have been performed after the photo was recorded by the camera, in the case of the first photo the brilliant colours have been caused by the camera’s exposure settings. The sky in the red channel is almost completely blown, and there are large areas of overexposure in the green channel.

If not ‘shopped, spectacular!

I’d love to see a larger version of the second one.

    no editing, we’re assured it’s all natural.

This top one is truly disgusting.
