You did much better with the color on this one, Joe. Nice contrast with the wood. Nice composition-the shadow helps to give this dimension. The texture works well with the wood. Perhaps a little less so for the leaf. Still, it works quite well for the effect you are working with.

Joe, the shadow provides depth and dimension to the image. Nice texture on the wood, and I’m wondering if that app allows you to make a selection where, for example, you could exclude the leaf from the treatment. Nice image.

It only allows for global treatment. The only way to lessen the effect is to reduce the overall effect, which still may work. I’ll try a different version a bit later. Thank you both for your input and suggestions.

Here's another version that also has slightly reduced yellows overall, but more saturation on leaf:
