Saturated Images

I have an interest in understanding the math behind digital image manipulations, like lightening and darkening images, converting color images to grayscale, and sharpening images. Sometimes I wonder what an image would look like if you performed a set of math operations on its pixels. Sometimes I write a computer program so I can see the results of these operations. And, on occasion, I like the results.

This image is the result of retaining each pixel's hue, but maximizing its saturation. I call this a "Saturated Image".
