I can't help thinking you would get the results you're looking for straight from the box if you shot on a sunny day (ok, it's not always possible), the light would be better, you could get more natural contrast and saturation.
But great thread, most interesting to see the results of each step.

The first attempts were over-saturated, but the last one is much better, good stuff.

I don't know, sunny days and white water seldom go hand in hand for good images. It is pretty good for fall colors, but not for white water. If you expose for the water, the rest of the scene would be awful dark.

Thanks for lookinhg and your comments.
