    My wife and I have a difference of opinion on what one to print for my parents. I thought the original was too monochromatic but she thinks the edited one is too dark.

    I'd say, somewhere between the two... and make sure you bump up the exposure a pinch too as prints tend to come out on the dark side.

    the edited imo. the original seems to be "stuck" with one colour. although blacks not reallyy a colour, but whatever. i like the edited version.

    Heres my version: Auto color, tweak saturation a bit, a bit of contrast and lower the brightness:

    Personally I'm not sure I'd print this as a large photo though because of the blur in the lower right corner. For me its distracting but I do love the fall color you've captured here.
