Not too much work on this one, just some color adjustment and a crop. This is a perfect example why you should shoot in RAW. Unless you use a custom White Balance it seems rare that the picture matches exactly what you see. I generally leave the White Balance on auto and adjust later on the computer.

Bright and a bit over exposed, I imported to ACR4.4 (adobe camera raw) reduced the exposure by 1/3 EV, pushed the tint -10 toward the green side,pushed the temperature toward the blue and boosted the blacks by 10.

Next I croped to get a better composition but I miss the bokeh to the right of the tree. Oh yeah, I increased the slight sparkle in his eye.
