Artistic interpretation

Nice Pics!

However, unless my monitor is off somehow, the pics seem to have way too much contrast (the blacks are crushed) and a bit oversaturated to my taste. Are these jpegs straight out of the camera or did you pp them?

IMO you should try to make them not so contrasty and punchy, but more natural looking like. Thanks for sharing!

I actually thought the higher contrast and brighter colors added some nice punch to the shots.  There might have been a few that were a touch over the top, but overall, I think this is well within the limits of artistic interpretation and if the OP prefers that look, I see no issues with it at all.

BTW, that additional punch can easily make the difference between a typical vacation snapshot and one that has more of a "wow" factor.
