Hi BigMacIain and welcome to this thread,

It's a very nice photo on the eye but and well composed but, if we look further and enlarged the image, we see a sea that seems to have a concrete like texture. Is that caused by a lens effect? Next question: do you have applied a gradient to the sky?

I would like to see the original color image.


Good call, Lou. I used a gradient on  the sky and I also used another gradient at the bottom to bring out the texture of the water. The problem was the horizon is evident in the original but the rest of the water was pretty featureless which made it look rather odd. As you remarked, the effect is to make it look like brushed concrete. I've re-done it to make it less solid looking. Here's the original as you requested.
