All comments are welcome.

Please feel free to post up your own edits if you wish.

What do you want us to critique? See "Posting to the C&C Gallery". Aside from cropping out the red thing on the left I don't see a significant difference.
Yes, we opened this forum after much discussion and input from members. This forum has different criteria than posting to the General Gallery section. Please read this post.

What are you specifically looking to improve?

This section is for those that really wish to improve.
Those that do wish to improve will put in the effort to read the requirements for the section and abide by those rules. Otherwise it's just a lazy CC welcome.

Hi all,

I did a slight colour change in the edit and was hoping someone would suggest a different way of editing.

I am interested in different opinions on post processing. CherylL showed a couple of options that are interesting.

I think the second picture is better because I don't understand what the red thing is and why it's there. It doesn't add anything to the picture. The out-of-focus tree trunk on the right isn't necessary I don't think. I'd crop it out. What is that thing sticking up out of the ground to the right of the tree in the middle? It looks weird.
