Default Cold water!

I used the dodge tool to lighten his face and unsharp mask at 40%.

Default Very nice!

A whole lot of green there...if it were me, I might bump up the contrast & saturation slightly using curves.

Nope, I don't mind, but please tell me what you did. It does look better.

My take: Too bright?

Default Let see...

I selected most of the water using the magic wand & raised the blue & saturation levels. I then grabbed most of the wood looking/bank & added a little red, grabbed peices of the rocks on the bank & pulled them up using curves. I then went back & captured the white foam & brightened it up slightly.

Default Water color

This was close to the real color of the water. (Very muddy)

Good action shot and 2 very good variations on it. Although ohenry might have made it too light, the higher contrast and whiteness of the water makes the water look far more turbulent than the original.
