Default Too Cartoon like?

I don't know why but I really like the cartoon look on this one. Is this wrong or just subjective? Three shots from my vacation hand held from Lunenburg Nova Scotia.

IMHO, it is too much. The colors are too bright and saturated and detract from the rest of the stuff. I think it could be more interesting toned down.

Just too bright and each color popped off the page. I just selectively toned down each color. The red is still too much for me but less than you have it.

I like the edit again Bynx, can I ask you what your using to pull back the colors? Right now I only have Photomatix, Aperture and Gimp. There all new to me still.

Im using Photoshop CS4. I use Selective Color and Hue/Saturation mostly. I was wondering about the color change. Did those two little boats with the green edge look yellow or like raw pine wood.

For my taste the last rendition is the best. Colors are strong but not over powering.
