This is a good shot, but I feel that the lovely greens are a bit muted and could benefit from some boosting.

I've done a mod - I upped the saturation (by +35), then did some burn work on the foliage shadows to improve contrast - I like the darkness of the tree trunks against the light of the leaves. I also cropped the right of the photo to cut off what I guess is someone's sleeve, and some of the left of the image to help improve the composition. I think this brings the dappled light on the ground and gives the image more of a strong focus. Smile

Edit: Almost forgot, I also dodged the highlights and burned the midtones and shadows on the path. Smile
