Wow, what a beautiful scene! The composition works very well. The only suggestions I have are technical and arent necessarily improvements, just personal preferences. First, I felt like there should be a little more emphasis on the shadowy corner on the bottom right. I added a gradient overlay set at 85 degrees with one side white and the other clear. This brightened up the shadows. I also thought it could use a touch more saturation, say about +15. And to finish, I sharpened it with the smart sharpen tool set to 0.5 pixels at 100%. Feel free to remove the attachment if you wish. Once again, great photo, I really love this scene!

Thanks very much, Thomas, for taking the time to do that! I think your work really improves the image. I had actually done a fair bit of lightening in that lower right corner already, to get it to the levels I had it at. I think when I did that work, it seemed like I had lightened it a lot from the original, so I was hesitant to take it as far as you did. Thanks also for providing the details on how you made your improvements! Cheers, Scott.
