Here are two versions of the same image of a bunch of mushrooms, or some other type of fungi, at Mariners Falls near Apollo Bay on Victoria's Great Ocean Road. Wet with moisture from the nearby falls the mushrooms were very reflective and, as a result, displayed very vibrant (highly saturated) colors.

While the colors in the above image are both accurate and interesting some may prefer the more subtle luminous quality of the black-and-white rendering below. Both versions of the image were processed in Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop CS3. The black-and-white rendering was achieved through the use of a Black-and-White Adjustment Layer.
