Turns out my first submission of this image (submitted on March 13) would have been illegal if I had left it in (since I had used a pixel-bearing layer). Thanks ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/user_id/7711.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/user_id/7711.gif', '/') + 1) . ' frisca for getting back to me!

This image involves shadow/highlight to bring the shadows up a bit. Next, a black and white adjustment layer at 60% opacity to drop the tonality in the blues. After that, a hue/saturation adjustment layer to boost the saturation and lightness in the blues a bit. Curves to increase contrast quite a lot, and finally some sharpening with unsharp mask on the merged image.

I'll be happy with anything over 6.

The foreground is a bit dark but that is a beautiful sky.

Oh my. That's quite a predicament, and one of the most original in this challenge! Great comp/colors/levels and scenery. Nuff said.

I like the sky but the water (ice?) is a bit dark.
