It was a beautiful day today and my only regrets are a) I only had an hour to take photographs, and b) I only managed to get two shots that I'm happy with. This is the first, and may be my favourite of the two – I can't decide.

If you're interested, the original is here:

The post-production involved seven masked Curves layers (five for contrast, one for tone, and one for a reverse vignette), one Hue/Saturation layer (to boost the yellows), and four masked Selective Color layers (to shift the hue of the blues, cyans and whites in certain areas of the image).
