Looking for reassuring criticism... maybe!
Jul 30, 2014

Hello all and thank you in advance for your replies.

In http://ge.tt/4pu2thp1?c   you will find two files, a jpg and the corresponding arw from sony a77.

Two things I want to know from you:

1 how well, or bad, do you think my jpg from raw is.  I used photoshop cs6 and basically I adjusted some level and contrast, upped saturation a bit and that is basically it. I was using a polarizer on my cz 1680 but pretty useless as I was looking into the sun as I took the pic.

2 even though I think the jpg came out pretty good (and you may think otherwise), I feel it does not do justice to the beauty of the scene.  Might/should I have done things differently? should I have used other tools in PS maybe? How can I make the pic pop out more alive?

Again, thanks for reading/replying/commenting/retouching the pic.
