I am also curious as to how you did that, I also like that you extended the wall in the upper right

I swiped the water surface with a clean towel.
:)

Just kidding... I used the clone tool and spot removal tool in photoshop and did carefully work with them. However, personally, I like the shot for how it looks, not for the skills in PS. ;)

Yep, lots of cloning. But the real "achievement" is more the fact, that it isn't obvious in the final product. :) The lower right corner was quite a challenge to tame.

But the point is, you took a "hohum" photo and turned it into something very nice. It was your ps skill that did that. I couldn't even see the edits even zoomed way in.

I always feel, that the most important part is to see the opportunity... without that, all postprocessing isn't leading you anywhere. I call that "polishing the raw diamond". It has to be a raw diamond, then the polishing will reveal the sparkle and purity. But you cannot polish a simple stone to become a diamond.
;)
