Professionals are going to cringe at this, but for myself and 99% of users, this is probably my best tip. Photo editors have come a long way, and the software behind them is smart. Really smart. The auto adjust feature in Google Photos is outstanding. For Photoshop users, the go-to tool is under Adjustments -> HDR Toning. Typically, what these tools will do for whitewater photos is they will make the photos appear warmer (saturation slightly up) and it will remove shadows. Take a look below by moving the slider.
