Alright well I took this picture and I thought the colors were a little dull so I tried to do a color boost. Tell me what you think!

1st dock with 2nd horizon pulled back just a bit in saturation and pushed slightly in hue closer to the yellowish tint of the leaves. Between the two I like the first better. 2nd is a bit overcooked for me. :)

second that.

also, show the full pic, cause it's obviously cropped.

It really depends on your goals. One thing you might consider is to avoid having the horizon split the image neatly in half.

I'd probably go with more depth of field, to get the leaves and foreground sharp.

And then for this scene, it would work really well in black and white.

Honestly....don't like it. It's too saturated. Of the 2, the first is the better choice in my opinion.

Thanks for the comments, I agree it is a little too saturated. I would love it if someone would want to enhance the original and post it for other ideas !

I'm gonna agree, I do like the first one as well.
Maybe decrease the highlights just a tad.

Ask and you shall receive! :)

Forgive the rude fix. It's far from all nice and clean, but I did a 5 min layermask with whatever size brush I used last. Copied the left hand side of the dock, pasted flipped horizontally for symmetry then warped to put the center line in the center of the shot. That also took out that first OOF leaf. Kinda sepiaish but less red. Again, nothing workable, but just to give an idea. Also the second fixes the 1/2 and 1/2 issue just to see if you like it better..

as for saturation [I guess, we dropped the second pic by now], the first image is not oversaturated.

and, as far as your modifications went, first one is still the best. you can "see" the fog there. fog - as part a part of out world.

would love to see this pic more horizontal or vertical though. still.

Took a shot....I like breaking the rule of 3rds when possible but I don't know that it works here, for me at least.
