    I think you can boost up the saturation and contrast to make it more vibrant. Right now the colors make it look a bit flat.

    Mmm.. I agree with MC. But jeez - great composition. Try the colour boosing and I think you have a wee ripper there!

    Personaly I think I'd leave the color alone. It has a natural look to it.

    I'm torn on the color here. I like the natural lighting, and it brings a softness to the photo. I think some areas could be lightened a bit to bring out some additional detail in the leaves. Nice photo.

    Color depends on the photographer and what he's looking for. If you're looking for what I believe was a dull scene (color wise) anyway, let the natural tones rule. If you want saturated color, get busy in PS. Play around with it and see what you like. MHO

    I think i prefer the second one... with the exception of the red in the branches (which is a bit distracting)

    it has more of a lush, oasis-like, hidden treasure kind of quality, rather than just a boring old stream picture.

    I prefer number 1. I think the photograph is really nice, the quality is good as well. It's just a shame about the size.
