I love how the rain and overcast skies really make the colors pop. After being out all day running errands, etc...I found a few spare minutes on the way home to stop by this park road. It had rained hard for the first time in weeks and I figured the leaves would be covering this stretch of road...I was right. The lady running in the photo just happened thru and I made some quick adjustments (aperture slide from F22 to F4.5 and ISO from 200 up to 400) to catch her without much blur. I actually had to knock the saturation down a bit in this otherwise I'm sure I'd really get the "oversaturated" comments. Probably still will. :-)

Trying to save this at 200kb was challenging! Ended up running the compression all the way to 29 (reworked it down to 25 with a healthy crop) to get DPC friendly.

Very nice shot; would have liked to see the shot without the runner though.
