Nice shot but I see something that does not look quite right. If you look at the sky in most of the image and then look at it through the branches of the tree the coloring is different. The clouds look darker with a reddish tinge. Not sure if it is CA but it doesn't show as much around the other branches. Is the sky a replacement sky? How much processing did you do with the colors such as intensity and saturation?

Ah. I see what you're talking about. I applied a warming filter with a linear gradient mask. The weird coloring actually extends from the center of the tree out to the edge of the frame (consistent with the mask). It's less noticeable toward the edge of the frame because I also have a little vignetting. The warming filter was meant to make the grass look a little more realistic (I bumped up the saturation slightly). I think I'll remove the warming filter and just adjust the hue a little. 

 

Thanks!

Nice. If it were my image, I'd get rid of the green clumps (reflections?) in the bottom right hand corner.

I like the scene, Is it a water hazard on a golf course?  A tad too much saturation for me though. I think you are trying too hard in post -processing, let nature speak for itself.

I thought it was a golf green too LOL - I would play a little with the hue on the greens and yellows to get it looking a bit more natural and not yellow - I agree with George though, don't overcook the post-processing touch

What this picture needs is a person fishing, painting or some other leisure activity from the porch of the cabin.
