I posted this shot on here last year I think, but I recently started playing with PS more, and edited this to a point where I think its better.

Let me know what you guys think. C&C appreciated.

The photo has a greenish cast, at least on my screen. Try bump up the Hue, and also make the temp a little warmer. If you are Adobe Camera Raw in PS, or Lr, do some local adjustment and make the left side of the frame dimmer (the blur green foliage at the back) because it is catching too much attention. Just my $0.02. :)

Nice shot, I agree with Fee, plus given the pose, I would have gone with a portraiture orientation as opposed to landscape, here's my take on it.

Tried my edit of it, resharpened and boosted saturation. Portrait crop as suggested

Good suggestion Paul!
Chad, please pay attention to how Paul treated those bright patches of the bg. That's the idea.

You guys never fail to impress. :) thanks for the edits and kind suggestions. Not sure why portrait orientation didn't occur to me, but hey, I'm still kinda new and not afraid to admit it. Here to learn.
