Here you go - quick pass on the first file

It actually looks more like foliage now - without the ringing caused by the bright reflections on the upper leaf surfaces.

RAW conversion in ACR

WB to Daylight (Critical step)

Sharpen at 53 1.3 - you may choose variations to taste based on final output size and media

Apply CA removal tool (optional with 35mm Lens - required for 18mm Lens)

You could then play with Clarity in ACR, or even Structure in NIK, but it's not required in this case.
