Another interesting challenge which was not so easy as it first looked! I did the main tweaking in lab to increase the saturation and improve detail in the leaf while not darkening the insect too much and darkening the light coloured background.  I also tried to give the leaf a translucent surreal look. I added a bit of red in rgb to warm the tone. The picture can be improved by cropping.  Thanks for letting me have a go, I enjoyed the challenge!

Kind Regards


The flat part of your L  curve is making the background look a bit flat.  See if you can adjust it a bit to take the "solarized look" out of the rock in the background
