Good water flow and good job keeping the fencing on the left out. When I was there, the water was chocolate milk brown!

Thanks; the colours of the waters in all the lakes around there were stunning, as well as many of the canyons/waterfalls. I was fortunate that whilst I was at Sunwapta the weather behaved, as it was very much less pleasing during the rest of the Icelands Parkway.
That said you had your photo already named for you, clearly, it would have to be "chocolate milkshake"!

I love the water in this. If the water was just naturally that color, you were very lucky, and if you tweaked it to be that shade, awesome choice!

Only quibble I have is that I'd love to see some detail in the overblown clouds to kind of finish out the water/earth/sky scene.

I did consider adding a graduated -ve exposure (maybe +ve clarity) for the clouds, I'll definitely give it a go this weekend and see if I can bring out a bit more detail without making it look unnatural.
Re the water, I added a bit of saturation and warmed it up a touch, but the water was naturally colourful itself. The Canadian rockies have some amazing glacial water, the colours were epic (I'm looking at you Grassi lakes!)
