Well though out composition here - I really like the path and the way it leads you right down to the end of the peninsula. the whole image works in that respect.

I'd say that you've done pretty well with the exposure, it's was obviously a flat light day, so no chance of blowinmg highlights.

However, it's lacking a certain punch as a result.

You can't always cure it in post processing - but if you shoot in RAW, in the RAW convertor, have a go at lowering the overall exposure a bit, then up the contrast and bring up the highlights in the curves section. then slide up the exposure till it starts looking right.

Were it a mcfade shot, I'd say get some saturation whacked in there too - the greens and burned colours on the path would look nice with more colour.

I'd agree with Ade, good potential with the comp. but shot on a crap light day. the real answer of course is to go back when the light's better. But, after the event, yes certainly some post processing will give it more punch, even if you don't shot raw. i just had a very quick play, but try increasing brightness by 10%, contrast by 17%, and saturation by 12% - a starting point of course, but play around till you get the optimum.
