Reflections - Creek and sun

The above image was taken May 7 towards the sun over Carroll Creek. I got a bright reflection and dark silhouette of the city skyline. I used the levels command in PhotoShop Elements to adjust the range of dark and light tones in the image and got the image below which brought our details not visible in the normal image. A further adjustment of the color gave the dramatic third image.

Lew.....Wonderful shot. Thanks so much for sharing how you manipulated the level adjustment in PS to get the different takes on the image. That is so helpful to those like moi who are struggling to learn. That 3rd one is my pick of the three...really like it.

I liked the top one best until I saw the finished product at the bottom. Nicely done!

Nice work on the technics here, Lew... My favourite is the last one : the water looks so metallic, on it...
