cropped, lightened slightly, unsharpmask, hue and saturation, neat image for a little noise reduction

Not exactly great but a little different

Here is my attempt. I made a slight adjustment to white balance, some sharpening and cropped so the branch wouldprovide continuity from upper left to lower right. Used Graduadeted ND filter, and some contrast to bring out the berries in F/G.

Thanks aladyforty, Vtphotog, and Elc for your efforts aswell as explanations. I must be learning bit already from this site as I knew ofsome of what you were talking about (by that I mean I recalled the terms not I knew how). Yippee my confidence is growing and I'm a man on a mission! Move over mountains.

In my honest opinion, not to put down the edits, but your original shot looks best in terms of color and sharpness. The edits are to the point of losing detail in the berries.

A bit of selective sharpnening, highlighting, and color burn. No real noise, though the sky can be always cleaned easily without losing detail. Nothing to drastic. It's a low res file so it is easy to lose detail. Also, the berries are the subject here, so I chose to crop differently. That little decrepit berry says something to me too. You can fake a bit more exposure range in them (as I tried to do). That wrinkled little weasel provides good contrast to the firmer ones on the left (I played them up a bit). You need a bit more DOF, I think the focus problem is a bit distracting. Happy shooting. I wish I was there, looks nice.
