    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.
