Is this shrub as big a problem as I think it is?

    The one at the bottom left. I like the angle of the path, and I don't want to "recompose" (i.e. pull the doggone thing up) cause I'm not sure who it belongs to (and it would be pretty selfish anyway).

    Any tips on how I can dress this up, or is it just not a keeper?

    I see where your pof is but i think there is a lot going on here and the path is suppose to jump out but its covered mostly...

    In this case I feel happy about your "OK to edit" ... for much rather than just explain to you what I would do about the grass on the left, I wanted to try out what CAN be done about it. Here is my result:

    I threw a lasso around the grass and selectively lowered the non-existent shadows and the midtones, too, until I felt it looked better, less bright and prominent.

    And then I felt I might get some more colour out by selecting the entire pic and lower the midtones only a tad, from 100 to 90. No more.
