I would use Automatic Saturation Enhancement, i just tried it on you great photo and it looks even better, i also would sharpen your image slightly.

an easy photo editing tool is Picasa2 from you can sharpen the photo and adjust the lighting very easily with this.

Hi Rich i use Paintshop Pro 7 to do my photos, you can get a copy very cheaply now, the newer versions i find a little tricky to use. I am not fortunate enough to have Adobe photo shop but if you have this then i am sure this would work great too, Charlie

the problem is the smaller compact sized cameras have a greater depth of field, on a DSLR f3.5 would have given you a nice smooth background.
As it is try a strong crop - take out all the green trees and plants, if you have a clone tool you can replace the leaves behind him with the scrub. Increasing saturation will not help as he is the same colour as the scrub (by design Smile). The image doesn't look quite sharp so try a sharpening function in your program, and if you can play around with levels and contrast settings.

Nice capture btw. I would love to see ones these in the wild.
