Photo was made after the sun had dropped behind some hills early in the evening, so the only light was from a pastel sky.

Color correction using threshold and curves, cloned sensor dust (I hate that stuff), NeatImage, USM, dodge and burned some of the water, cropped and added slight border, cloned excess USM in a couple of places around the large lava rock.
