Colorful, but too much post-processing.

The only post-processing done was combining three separate exposures called HDR. This is the intended look. Some like it, some don't. Thanks for looking though...

Yeah, it gives it an interesting effect, but I was thrown off by the light blue color of the sky between the tree leaves and branches near the top right corner of the picture. It seems to be light blue only between those leaves...maybe just an optical illusion though.

It is light blue in those areas, you are not seeing things. That is sometimes a side-effect of HDR processing. It all depends on the settings on how harsh it looks. The program I use usually comes up with the optimal settings on its own. If you adjust it to far you can come up with some really harsh looking shots! Had I noticed it before I uploaded it and wanted to take the time I could have photo-edited it to match the rest of the sky.
