    There may not be any color shifts due to processing after all. Just a little adjustments to the color helps. Nice shot!

    Awesome! Thanks! Looks like it just needed a bit of green. I’m not completely confident about color editing yet as I mostly do black and white.

    Photoshop's "Auto Color" is usually a good starting point

    Thanks for the suggestion. I only use Darktable which is a free software.

    I have Photoshop, but for this pic the "auto color" doesn't work very at all because the algorithm wants to average the colors. That works pretty well in a normal scene, but this shot is predominantly green and auto color doesn't handle it very well. I also use Darktable, which is a very powerful open source editing software. For your Natural Falls image I used a photoshop curve adjustment for the version I posted, but I also did it with Darktable. I only used the Color Balance module and am posting it here in case it's of any help to you.

    Thanks for sending the histogram! I was mainly using Darktable's Negadoctor module to convert the colors. My eyes definitely need more color training.

    Excellent, that's a great example of what I was talking about regarding "timing" here in the GSMNP--you found a nice window in which the riparian vegetation "opens up" under optimal lighting.

    Otherwise, if you're back this way, the Elkmont area (reached by a side road about a mile back west of the Laurel Falls parking area) is a great place to explore as well. Little River "Trail" is really an easily walked gravel lane for about four miles (though if you spend any time in the streambed you'll have to navigate over car and house-sized boulders at times), and of course you can also bomb up a couple of Little River tribs (and/or up to Sugarland Mountain) if you're feeling burly.

    Well done!
