I post this as a request for help. ;-)
It was hard for me to know where to draw the line in post-processing. The quarter-second exposure did a decent job in capturing the scene, but where to dodge? where to burn? More contrast and less brightness, or less contrast and more brightness?
I throw myself on the mercy of the jury. Feel free to critique or workshop this and let me know what I should have done!
My only request -- if you critique this shot and think it is beyond salvation, please look at some of my other work and give them some love?
Oh, yeah -- Barton Springs is a spring-fed, stone-bottom swimming hole in Zilker Park very near downtown Austin. When the temperature is over 100F/40C, the water (at ~68F) is VERY refereshing. Summer nights can stay very warm, so on full moon nights in the summer, there is always a party!

The post processing is evident in the green of the tree, but I think it makes the shot.
Your photo is well framed and composition is good.
I look forward to future postings
