Daily photo - Paradise

Time for another HDR photo. Today it's Paradise (I hope you'll find it appropriate :) ) - high dynamic range image I took in Xcaret park in Mexico. It's one of those rare cases where I almost didn't need to increase saturation in post-processing. It's because the colours where really there and with use of circular polarizing filter, they became even more pronounced. Post-processing was therefore more about increasing clarity and contrast this time than about the colours.
