Did you set you D40 Color Mode to II(Adobe RGB) and shoot in JPEG(sRGB) directly?
If you are shooting RAW there's no need to set the Color Mode to II since RAW file already holds more data than 8-bit JPEG.

This color looks extremely wierd.
Do not trust everything you read on web especially regarding image settings in DSLR.

Or If you are looking for "special color effects". Then please ignore what I said above :)

I agree somewhat. But that may hurt some people here :)

No, I know everyone on this site is all about not stepping on people's toes and not hurting feelings, but that doesn't mean everything is acceptable. I'm not published, this guy is, that has no affect on whether or not this is crappy. I don't know how this made it up.

It's not bad at all...in fact it looks like one of the more pure photos on here. Don't get me wrong, I like most of the images put up here and don't have anything published myself (My one possible photo has a timestamp on it and that's just ew). The difference between this photo and most of the others though is that this one has not been processed in photoshop for hours like most of the others. (In my opinion)

No but it's true. For some reason they keep on adding new wallpapers every single day since. They should be more selective and sack the admin who chose this picture!

No. This photo is broken. I'm sure since I own a D40 also ;)
There's NO WAY you can get that color from D40 unless:
1. color mode
2. hue shift

No, no, no.
Nothing like that. My Nikon is extremely healthy, I never use color modes, my lightroom is very gentle with the contrasts, my raw developer (excellent software, by the way) does only "luminance curves" (: no color shifts) and I only use photoshop for sharpening. So, what is this abomination? Oh, you know what? This is reality, guys. Remember, I was there... That "extremely weird color", this "hue shifts", this "special effect", this green "ugliness", is exactly what mother nature offers you to see when the wind is extreme to broke any communication outside the island for at least 3 days. Now, forget for 3 seconds your virtual HDR environment, the rose-orange sunsets, your freezing night view skyscrapers, your oversaturated clouds, and by all means, please, forget your crappy photoshop skills. Then enter. Welcome to reality and hello!

I don't think this picture is all that bad, it's not amazing or anything but everything is in nice focus and very sharp, plus I've definitely seen much worse. I've got 2 questions though, first off, is that a church or some sort of building near the shore and second, why does it look like is is glowing?

I don't get all these people condemning this photo so much. I quite enjoy the contrast levels in this photo, it accentuates the color of the sea very well, accenting the different hues of the land underneath the waves. Relax.

I do not only like art but unlike others I'm able to understand it too!

Me too.
For that reason I'm an artist for the last 20 years, you know. And you can check this on some Portuguese Museums.

I agree with what you says. But unfortunately maybe the grass/sky/water I see here around my place(planet?) is vastly different from the island.
I don't shoot HDR. I don't modify my photo. Heck I don't even know how to really fully utilize lightroom, not to mention photoshop.
I don't set my D40 with enhance saturation. I don't load secret-sauced tone curve into my D40.

Vibrant color doesn't mean "photochopped" or "HDR". I shoot what I see, with color and my "reality".

I have no intention to question your creation here if that's your definition of "reality".

Looks over-sharpened. Dull as well.

Bad composition of the photo--lots of useless off center water surface, big hill and the church?...the piece of interest is so small it makes it irrelevant for this picture. Going down hill and along the coast and framing more of the land mass and less of sea, or otherwise, would have created great effect...even more, getting close to the church and making it in the foreground with mountain overshadowing on the background or lonely sea on the back would be even better. As far as colors are concerned? These are normal colors because: 1) Humidity 2) High wind 3) glare from the ocean, = High wind brought lots of humidity over the land making colors the way they are--these are real colors. Without polarizer filter to take care of glare from the ocean you get what you get.

LOL! Wow! When did this place become an SOHO art gallery? With critiques like this IFL should start charging a membership fee. S_gito_milos, thanks for sharing your part of the world. Made me feel like I'm standing there. That's what it really comes down to.
