PP Challenge #36

It's my privilege to host this week's Post Processing Challenge (#36).
This one will need working magic on a basic landscape taken at dusk on a beach in New South Wales's beautiful Jervis Bay.
Vibrancy and 'wow' factor will be highly regarded.

RAW file: Captains beach12.PEF (13.1 Mb)
JPEG file: Captains beach12.jpg (1.2 Mb)

Enjoy the challenge:

I wanted to enhance the detail which also enhanced a lot of dust or water spots on the water and sky. At risk of tearing out what little hair I have left trying to remove them I finally opted for a square approach.

From the JPG and PP with PSP X

- Straightened the horizon
- Masked for the sky
- Duplicate sky level which I converted to a B&W Negative
- Set Duplicate sky to overlay blend mode
- Slight curve for contrast

For the rocks and water
- Used the Clarify action set at 20
- Curve for contrast and saturation

My rendition.

This is the 2nd rendition...eliminated the rock/brick in the center (which I thought was a distraction of image as whole) and tweaked some tonal values.
