The Reflecting Pool

The Reflecting Pool

Updated Feb, 25th 2013

and the edit where I cropped the photo to eliminate the washed out sky and dark buildings in the background.  I then altered the hue and luminance of the water to get the blue I wanted, left some spots darker than others and added a vignette effect to make the river look like it were the ocean.  

Still learning but I'm enjoying Lightroom so far
