Kim you may be right. I like the colors in this, but I'm curious as to what type of lighting you were shooting in Gail? Was there any sweet light? If so, I just killed it. I actually hadn't noticed the yellowish cast in the original. I'm loathe to offer suggestions as I'm not that adept at 'seeing' what might be done to any shot....I more or less have to just jump in and tweak until it's in front of me.

I do like the colors better in this one! But I did like the contrast in the first also.
I like this better...the sky looks very nice. Can't help you on the balance thing Nonda brought up. I liked it with both the bushes and the branch...but that may unbalance it for you too. Regardless of whether you decide, I like what you have done to improve it this far.
