Added canvas to the top and bottom.
Knocked out image.
Used FP Flood for the water effect.
The sky came from a previous sunset I shot.
Adapt.eq to bring out some detail.
Light simplification.
Desaturated certain areas.
Hue and sat adjustments via selections.
Increased color of foliage.
Eliminated a few things I thought to be distracting.
Simplified sky again to compensate for image reduction.
Contrast adjustment.
Warmed Colors a bit.
Made frame in layer styles.

Lqqker, that is absolutely amazing. It is striking, bold, and dramatic. It looks like it belongs on a book cover or in a gallery. I would buy a print of that in a heartbeat.

Neve, I'm beginning to be jealous. I want Painter. I want Painter. LOL.

I wanted an excuse to try a planet and starfield tutorial I found.
I used curves, color balance, and some dodging and burning to get the lighthouse to look the way I wanted. Then I extracted it, flipped it horizotally, and left it on it's own layer.
I did the planet and starfield by following a tuorial by Greg Martin: plantet, star tutotial

I copied the star layer and flipped it to make a mirror image.
I drew an orange line where they meet to create a horizon line.
Then I took my other elements (planet, lighthouse, and tugboat) ,which were all on seperate layers, and positioned them on the starfield background.
Then I copied and flipped these layers and positioned them to create the reflections.
