First off, I think this is a great shot, but I can see your problem. It doesn't really fit with your other pics, does it? I think you may have to leave it out of the grouping you're trying to do and use it as a "stand alone". On the bright side, though, with the orange-ish clouds and dark blue sky peeking through, it's definitely a candidate for this month's contest theme of "Complimentary Colors".

I think TaoMaas has it right. It's a great stand alone shot and it's possible you could make a WB adjustment or simply slightly desaturate the shot (but only a little). But I'd be reluctant to change it very much if at all.
How close is the shot to what you saw in terms of the colours captured? That will tell you if any WB correction is needed.

probably warmer {the orig had a more blueish cast}i think from memory i used either the cloudy or shade setting in bridge...as shot was cold..........its really hard to peg down how it looked/should look as it was realy realy low light with fog ,clouds rain etc ,all in all a strange light...
ill stick in a "filler" as the 10th or cut the whole lo9t down to 6 images

Good shot!! Maybe a bit more contrast along with a touch less saturation might do the trick - for me it just needs a bit of fine tuning to really get that WOW factor

Cheers

I really like it. I would maybe try straightening it a little and then maybe crop about a centimeter or so from the bottom to emphasize the mirror image effect more.
