I spent three days on a canal boat and took pictures of stuff as it passed by!
Loving my wide-angle Sigma 10-20mm, it's constantly on my camera with a polarising filter permanently attached (which I have to thank for the beautiful depths and contrasts of the sky and water).
Actually not much done to this in photoshop (believe it or not), boosted the colour a little and added a slight blur to the bottom part of the photograph.
Orton-method applied to both the above.
Played with the shadows and highlights to get this effect, a bit like I did for "From the Sea". Also dodged the sheep on the ledge a bit to make him stand out, love that sheep!
