Tranquil summer morning at Lake Saimaa ... this is the stuff that Finnish tourist brochures are usually (and a bit too often) made of.

With views as beautiful as this then I can see why they would want to include them in their brochures, this is a very tranquil scene with a wonderful range of greens beautifully reflected in the mirror quality of the lake, it makes you look forward summer.

The image is a bit too blue/green - I would add some red.

You might also try changing the gamma or moving the black point to the right, to give the image a bit more contrast.

Thank you Alfred. Extra greenness & blueishness may be the result of polarizer which I was probably using. This exrta blue annoys me also at times, since it makes pictures sometimes to look a bit too "touristy" or lends them some kitschy postcard-quality. But I would have never thought of trying to avoid it by adding some red. Manipulating pictures by computer is still quite new to me. After owing 6 film cameras I have been in digital world only about a year.
Thanks for the advice, Pekka.
