Thanks to everyone in the critique gallery for your help.
Just upgraded to an 8 gig card and started shooting in raw format, which I should have done years ago.
This image is made up of 3 photograhs of the same scene, 2 of which are the same image. One for the sky and water, the other for the general foreground.
To get the sky one to fit, I had to enlarge it slightly so that it would hid just behind the foreground image (which had its sky removed).
The fore ground image also had parts of the water removed so that the third image would show a denser water area.
Various masking has been used to localise areas for b/c, and saturation.
A warm up filter and graduated layer have also been used.
10 hours later, we have what I hope is the final image.
