Here is another version of a shot I took in Autumn. Any critique or tips on modification would be appreciated. Is it oversaturated?

I feel you've got it about right. You wouldn't want to saturate it any more than you have as it might start to become un-natural but what you've done looks good to me
i like it. Good reflections
I just added some constrast, shadows&highlights, alittle sharpening. let me know what you think.
It's not oversaturated as such - it's the light that is wrong.
You have blue sky ,reflections and it's a bright sunny day yet the image looks a little too dark.
The image also lacks sharpness.I have done a quick mod. I have just pushed the light up a little in levels to balance the overall shot and added a little sharpening which has given the f/ground rock and the b/ground trees more definition.
Hope that helps.
Thanks for the modifications ashminder and bricurtis. They are certainly an improvement and give a more punchy effect. I just use elements and am still getting used to it. I seem to have a congenital fear of oversharpening and never am quite sure how far to go with it.
Re sharpening. Best not to overdo - that will create light halo's around the subjects. A common practice is to do an extra bit of sharpening after resizing your image for upload requirements as compression will take the edge off the original sharpening - especially at 600 pix. It's a fine line and there are several ways of doing the sharpening but you should be able to find what suits you best as you become more familiar with your software.
If you can try to learn how to sharpen with the High Pass filter it is far more effective than the USM imo.
