Louise, I hope you approve of the Mod Smile
Rotated a fraction (anti-clockwise) and sharpened slightly.

It's a nice shot - good composition, with lots going on to look at.

Well, You've already been told that it's crooked so I won't mention that!
I've uploaded a mod. in which I've straightened it; although I think that I've gone a touch too far and I've reduced the blue cast using curves, channel mixer and colour balance.
Given more time, I'd apply a layer mask across most of the top and have a go at adding some contrast selectively.
I didn't sharpen the mod., I suppose I should have done really but in all honesty, I don't think that you'd ever get the whole of that scene really sharp anyway.
As Jack says, it's not a bad shot.

Hope this helps.

Thank you all very much! I think I need to get it sharper in the original shot. I used f8, the smallest aperture, and i used a tripod and the 2 second shutter speed. Any other suggestions??
Thanks very much!! Smile
