Can you tell me how you got such dramatic coloring and do you use Adobe? Or what color scheming do you use if any?

Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken during Autumn at the North West of Tasmania. I saw the scene as I was about to drive through this spectacular scene, I knew I had to shoot this. I quickly looked for a place to pull over on the side of the road.
Time
It was in the afternoon around 2.00pm, the light was beaming down but it was very soft because of the cloud cover.
Lighting
Because the light was coming straight down from the top, I thought I would shoot 3 pics bracketed. I was concerned about the deep shadows looking up into the tree. As it turned out, I only needed one pic because I was able to recover shadow in Capture one.
Equipment
At that time I used a fuji xt1 with a 16-55mm lens. I walked out into the road for quick look, it was strictly a quick handheld sequence because there were fairly fast cars driving by. Afterwards, I thought I would have liked being down lower closer to the road, but I had concern for my safety, so I needed to get the shots as quickly as possible.
Inspiration
The sheer blaze of colour from Mother Nature was all the inspiration I needed to quickly pull over and take this unplanned shot.
Editing
I shoot in raw and used Capture One to open up the shadows. I ended up only using one pic and didn't need the bracket sequence. After tweaking highlights and shadows and the curve, I turned saturation OFF so that I could concentrate on shaprneing and clarity without affecting colour and also being distracted by it. I sharpened the pic and applied a bit of clarity. Then I cranked the saturation to 100% to used Blake Ruis technique to tweak white balance, a very quick and easy mehtod that follows on naturally from this--- https://www.on1.com/blog/on1-short-clip-complete-white-balance-control/ Then I turned the saturation down to what looked right and sent the pic to photoshop to add the orton effect...a bit of soft glow/blur to soften the sharpening slightly, and I was done!
In my camera bag
I normally have a 50-140mm on a fuji xt2 and have a wide angle 16-55mm and well and mt bird lens, the 100-400mm with a x2 if necessary. I dont travel with a tripod unless I specifically need one, but 90% of my pics are handheld.
Feedback
This situation was completely unplanned. If you are driving around during Autumn, figure on getting a lucky shot because so many trees are going through a spectacular change in leaf colour. To do a tree shot justice, you need some kind of wide angle on the camera as a default at that time of year. Normally my default is the 50-140mm, but if there is a chance of finding tree colour, go for the wide as a default.
