    Crazy clouds is right! I haven't seen clouds like that since I left Florida. Looks cool! It would make a great screen saver.

    What do I need to do in order to not over saturate the pic? Does it have something to do with getting the shot under exposed or over?

    Last 2 are untouched (cept for a crop) in photoshop.

    I'm pretty sure the saturation can be adjusted in the PARAMETERS section of the options. It's common knowledge that because the 300D is aimed not at pros but at high-end hobbyists that the camera settings are tweaked slightly compared to say a 10D to give pics that are sharpened more, and are more saturated (from memory) to give photos that look more vibrant. There are custom parameters that you can tweak the settings of to adjust the look of your shots.

    I've seen somewhere (dpreview maybe) an actual explanation of precisely how the 300D varies from the 10D in terms of these values, so it's worth looking that up.

    EDIT: But if you think it happens on the 10D as well then I dunno, maybe it needs to be even less saturated again, but the 300D should definitely be more saturated than a 10D out of the box.
