IMHO it is indeed a badly processed image. I suspect that the burning of 
the highlights, and lack of shadow detail,  are the result of either 
shooting in low quality JPEG, and/or bad processing. The over saturation 
and over-saturation and high luminescence  of the green, are clues to 
poor processing.

Having said that, I agree it might be a good place to chill out for a while.
