Found this ranch in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Saturday morning during a short road trip. The past few days of rain have turned miles of yellow grass to a bright green. Lots going on here and it took a while to decide on a composition although I must have shot this 10 different ways. Shot handheld with :
D300 Nikon 24-120 f4 ISO 200 1/250 at f9 manual settings
Hoping to find some great wild flower fields in the next week or so.

I love this region of the country... every place you drive there's something new to see. A few miles from here your into higher elevations and snow this time of year...In less than an hour you can be walking in 3 feet of snow and then hiking thru miles of green grass...

Nice setting Peter. Just a FYI, there is no profile assigned to this image or a couple of your others as well. Must be getting stripped out in what ever editor you are using. Firefox handles it well as it assigns it to sRGB and then applies my monitor profile but IE does not do this. It applies the sRGB profile but does not use my monitor profile and there for the colors is over saturated.

Not sure what's going on on that end... I'm using the same program and process for post work I have for a couple years now.. Elements 8 and I shoot and process everything in JPEG. Moving into RAW shooting and processing with Capture NX when my 800E arrives. And I post everything thru Firefox...don't really care for IE. I'll be the first to admit I have lots to learn about post work but I'm not sure whats creating the issue on your end with oversaturation...something new to me at this point.

I don't think it is on this end. Everything I use to read image data tells me there is none in your images... Here is an example from PhotoMe.
If I save this image and then open it up in Photoshop, Photoshop warns me that there is no embedded color profile. For web posting images should really be in the sRGB color space. You said your images look fine in Firefox. I believe this because if Firefox does not see a embedded color profile it will assign one to the image using sRGB. Most other browsers will not do this as they are not truly color managed. So if someone if viewing your images in a different browser other then Firefox there is no telling what they are seeing on their end in terms of color.
I don't like IE either and have use Firefox since it came out. The over saturation happens in IE because it is not truly color managed. It assigns every image to sRGB and assumes your monitor is also in the sRGB color space, it does not use your monitor profile. If you have calibrated your monitor it is not in the sRGB space if it is a wide gamut display which today most are. If your were to calibrate your monitor to the sRGB color space (which can be done) images in IE would look the way they were supposed to if they were assigned to a sRGB color profile. But if you did you would loose out on the wider gamut color space of today's monitors.

I think part of the problem is the slope of the valley floor..I always look for vertical lines in the photo when I'm working with a tricky horizon ie trees, building edges etc. But it looks like it could be tweaked a bit. Appreciate the input.
