Great potensial in this shot! The foreground is too dark on my monitor though.

Byron, that is a very nice image but does need a little tweaking, hope that you don't mind, here is my version:

I lightened shadows, adjusted color a tiny bit and a little sharpening. I used Photoshop but almost any other app will do it and if you do it with the raw image it will turn out considerable better than this.

Take care,

Thanks for the input-i think my monitor may be too bright and need recalibrating. I use Polarr for most general adjustments, and ps elements for brush touchups.
