This seems to have potential, but seems a bit greenish and somewhat bland. How about a little pumping up of the colors? Take your pick as to how much is enough.

+1

Nice capture @ vision
Nice judicious PP (rework)

Clear evidence that both are integral to the success of one another.

I like Camperjim's re-work #1 but I would add just a touch more orange as illustrated in the 2nd re-work. It really comes to down to one's preference preference.

I made a separate layer and upped the red saturation on that layer. I also burned around the outside of the image to create a large vignette. The three different images are just different opacity settings for the red layer. Since I was just playing around I pumped up the red saturation way beyond reasonable. To make a more presentable image, I should have toned down the red and then adjusted levels and the opacity of the red layer to reach a pleasing compromise. Anyway sometimes it is fun just to play around. I did this rework in just a couple of minutes to show more possibility than a final image. Getting the hue and saturation just the way you want can take some time and numerous changes. It is also hard to do a decent job with a downsized image.

+1 ... and to show just how varied the range of "S&P to taste" can be.

Thanks Camerjim, I will give it a wing starting with the RAW image.

Looks like you are having success and fun playing with this.

There are a few more tools you might want to try. I like the enhancement for removing color cast. Just click on a colored portion of the image and you will get a new color tint for the image. You can try different areas and then using a separate layer blend into the original image for different effects. I also like to play with the color replacement enhancement. I often create a duplicate layer and then apply the "multiply" mode. This will also greatly change color hues and saturation.

Photoshop experts can use these tools to reach a desired endpoint. I often just use them to generate different and random effects. Those effects can always be blended in at low opacity to make minor adjustments to image color.

Thx Camperjim, I'll fool around with the image and try some of your suggestions.
