Ryan Holloway submitted this photo of Notre Dame in Paris. It definitely suffers from too much post processing. It's okay to kick up the saturation a little but this photo no longer looks realistic (which may have been what he was going for).

If he wanted a more subtle and realistic representation of the scene, he could crop out some of the sky (the empty space doesn't add to the photo) and pull the saturation down. Otherwise I think the photo is nice, two quick fixes will make it a lot better.
