I think the only improvement to this image would have been to bring your 'horizon' line down a touch. Although it doesnt really have a clear flat horizion, it seems to be a little over the bottom third. Could even be done with a slightly tighter crop.

Otherwise, excellent colour, contrast and sharpness.

I like it.

+1 ^^^ - agreed.
The lower third is almost sheer black - so there is no harm 'cropping' out some more from the bottom.

Sensational colours and a great capture

Yep. Slightly tighter crop, then leave it alone.

Looks very attractive, however, the foilage at the bottom is a little too dominant and unless you can make any defined shape out, it looks like a big blob of black. Therefore in line with previous comments, a slight crop off the bottom may improve the image immensly. It would be interesting to see what cs5 content aware fill would make of this as it looks like the bottom of the ride could be repaired.
