      I was on the end of a dock that extends out about 10 feet from shore, so that was as far as I could get. The green in the water is an algae/weed and is really that neon shade of green. I actually used PS to do some RAW adjusting before I did everything else, with all the other programs used as PS plugins. The dehaze I applied added in the heavy cyan/blue tint, probably went a little too far.

      Thanks Bruce, I’ve left it on the body as my standard lens, just for that purpose. Now if it would stop raining.

      I went back and pulled the original NEF for this image. All that was done here is to add an exposure gradient to the right hand side to lighten the zen garden on the right side of the photo. No other processing. You’re right, it has an HDR look to it, but it came out of the camera that way.

      Here’s my try. Darkened the background, sharpened the eyes and lips.

      I agree with what has been said above, and usually a tilted horizon would pop right out at me, BUT the tonality and range of the image were such that I did not even notice the horizon. Well done!

      I did a screen snip to get the image, then I used Topaz De-Noise to get rid of the noise. It took longer to repost than it did to process the image.

      Good point Falxy, but my wife was standing behind me with her shears and threatened to shorten me if I messed with her flowers. Frank, good thoughts on the diffuser.  Thanks everyone for your time and consideration.
