Golden Hour Streamside - Natchez Trace, Somewhere in TN

I interrupted my editing of my Vancouver Island images to accommodate a trip to Nashville to see my eldest son, and took the Trace all the way. The Trace isn't so much a photo op as an experience, but I did take a few photos. This one was taken along a stream just as the light turned golden late yesterday afternoon. There was kind of a backlighting effect of the low sun and the green trees and water, but I wonder if it is too vivid. It looked like that, which is why I stopped, then of course second guessed.

I think overall it too vivid. So Cheat and leave the stream/reflections as they are, but tone down the shores and upper leaves.

There are two stories here, one of mystery and adventure, the other of calm cool days! S-
