Loves Hi-contrast and rich colours, is it too much

I'm not one to ever simplify anything, My house is painted in rich jewel tones and seems to do the same with photography. I added an example, the original, my version of subtle retouching and my style of highly retouching. at this point of editing, it becomes more of a style choice but I'm interested in finding out what ppl think. don't think of this as a "natural look" but more like fantasy/ fashion art photography. So what do you think of these pictures?

Thanks, michele

And I like them too, but i do admit to being a fan of over saturated/ high contrast images
but in the end if that is what you like and that is your style go with it

Haha thanks, I tend to model for my own work often, i know what i want and I suck at guiding my models, so its just easier to do it...I need a model guiding forum more than retouching forum..lol

To me the greens look unrealistic in the 3rd. I would like to see the model from no. 3 with the background from no. 2 . if that makes sense ! Bill

I do agree about the greenery, its the sky i really wanted drama with, I tend to love dramatic skies. I really should just start shooting in HDR, I love that style, I could push contrast further. Thanks :-)

My only complaint is that you don't have more images. I enjoyed your gallery but it left me wanting to see more. Yeah, they are that good! Congrats.
