Dear BG,

As Frank has pointed out this is a well balanced picture but for me even if that is the actual colour of the water, it doesn't do the image any favours. For me with a shot like this I think it is a case of less is more and I would crop this to a panoramic format and lose the highest bird from the shot. Also I'm not sure if you've cropped right in, lightened a dark image or that the ISO was just to high for the camera but it seems to be very noisy.

I have uploaded a mod where I have changed the white balance and temperature of the shot in Camera RAW. Then I straightened and cropped the image. I then loaded it into DeFine and reduced the noice before slightly sharpening the image.

Hope this helps.
