A beautiful composition and very good blend.
The only thing which niggles for me are the lights in the distance
being too pink.
The sky is wonderful and you don't seem to have overdone the dodging and burning.
It's great that you're trying out all this new stuff Jim.
It would be interesting to see the original of this one.

A beautiful coastal vista Jim, one which is full of beautiful colour and light. The variant has been very well worked, however for me the tint looks slightly overdone. So for today I shall opt for image number one "Au natural"

Interesting to read your opening remarks up top, Jim: it's a nicely composed coastal scene but captured under rather flat light and with little contrast in the image. It is perhaps marginally OOF and I am wondering with a shutter speed of 0.4 sec. you were supporting the camera on a rock. but if using a tripod there may have been slight movement of it during exposure.
You have made a good attempt at enhancing the shot in V 1 although you may have warmed it up a little too much.
Might be worth going back to the original and having a look at the histogram and checking both the black and white ends of the graph: the other thing that might work would be to increase contrast, possibly brightness and only then thinking about enhancing colour saturation, but being careful not to overdo the last as it could produce a very unnatural result.
Not sure if any of this is of help but it is offered with the best of intent.
PS. It occurs to me that when asking for advice as you have, it might be worth while permitting Modifications, as other members could then apply whatever processing they feel useful, and you would be able to view the results too..........R.
