    Very good scene/composition, Colin. But the foliage looks rather yellow and heavy to me (it might be my monitor) I edited to desaturate the yellows slightly, and added a very small amount of exposure.

    Hmmm - your version looks a little light and under-saturated on my monitor

    Might just be a taste thing ... I wanted very lush vegetation. I'll take a 2nd look on my work screen tomorrow.

    It could be the way different people see colour. I see a lot of landscapes where the foliage and grass looks rather too yellow to me. I'm never sure if it's just me. Then of course there's the problem of cameras being capable of replicating accurately the colours that occur in nature... there's a thought, print it off and go back to the location and hold it up to the real scene?

    I know you have better things to do!

    For what it's worth, when I'm making adjustments to "green" foliage using a HSB layer, the "go to" colour is always yellow -- green usually affects less than 5% of the image. I did push the colour temp quite strongly towards warm also - so that will have an effect on it too.

    Looking at this makes me feel like I could step right into the photograph. Beautiful place.

    Yep, Like this, preferred (by me at least) to the horizontal format version, more variation of content here and more of a path to follow into the image - even if your feet do get wet in the process

    Nice one,
