Halp me /p/

I took this pic of a waterfall, and I think it's a decent pic but I can't figure out how to edit it to make it pop and not look stupid. Pic related; edit.

Well in my opinion the pixture doeent look stupid. Cliche maybe, but not stupid.

As for the editing, try and darkening the sky, its pretty blown out. Dont saturate anymore it looks colorful enough. Crop a little off the right side, dont need all that rock. I dont know what else to say sorry OP.

It's a very boring picture so you're limited. Looks better in black and white, you might want to try playing with monochrome too.

If you ask me, the original looks better. You've emphasised the blues too much in the edit.

Apart from that I think your framing is the issue. Too much light in the background.

I'm no expert though.

it already pops, this guy had the right idea of editing out the blues

>Keep colour of water original -- that blue looks too artificial, and waterfalls don't look like taht
>Tone down the sky's brightness
>If you want, make the trees pop a little more in the greens -- but that's it.

Essentially, lower highlights and increase the green, keep all else the same (maybe slight increase in exposure).

idk what else has been said in this thread, but if you want to take more pictures like this, I would recommend an ND filter. stopping down to f22 on a m43 camera is causing some serious diffraction here. this camera can do better but it's diffraction limited at this point, and i think that's the pop you might be missing.

Not sure if you'll see this OP, but I did a quick edit to make your image pop, but kept it looking as natural as possible. In your edit you boosted the vibrance way too much, you want to keep things looking natural.

Basically the main things I did was reduce the highlights, boost the colour of the rocks/trees slightly, reduced the blue in the water, and sharpened the overall image.
