Okay, here is my attempt.
done in lightroom and PS.
1 lowered color temp, exposure and added more contrast
2 cropped the light, I felt it took too much space in the reflection, and cropped the top so reflection and houses matched eachother.
3. exported to PS
4 color ranged the sky, and created a new layer with that, changed layer mode to linear burn and lowered opacity.
5 some selective tweaking of the color range selection,
6. done
7. to come, probably... I should fix some things that annoy me. But I have a super busy week ahead of me,with 12 to 20 hour workdays from tuesday to sunday.

Edit: I took care of the sky being darker than the reflection. Decided it annoyed the hell out of me and could not leave it even for the time being.

It's not a challenge to post process an already-good photo!



My goal here was to create a sunset-invoking scene, building off the time of day when you took the shot. I went for a muted tone look that was based on the already-inherent colors in the image to bring out the illuminating tones and reduce the colors that are less vibrant after the sun dips behind the horizon.

I forced myself to learn a little Photoshop this week. I used Lightroom 5 and Photomatix Pro to get the buildings and reflections the way I imagined the scene. I then used Photoshop for the sky and foreground reflection. I manually masked this (because I don't know how to do it any other way) and had to watch a few tutorials to learn how to mirror the sky for the reflection. I used a photo I took recently for the sky.

Another attempt

I am really enjoying these post processing challenges. It is great to see the different ideas and approaches everyone has. I tried something a little different (at least for me).

Good morning..... turned that sunset into a sunrise. Early morning tranquility, hot coffee on the dock with that brisk morning air.

I'm with Aston on this.

This spoke to me the same way when I saw this picture. Here is my PP of this photo. Added a little sunrise, added some cloud effect into the water for a fog type of look, and saturation levels changed amongst other things.

Thought this image was suited to B/W with all the textures and lines.
