Revisiting A Composition
There is an appeal to revisiting local spots to practice composition and experiment with one's photography skills. One is to gauge your growth and maturity as a photographer. Another is to experiment with new techniques.
The above photo is extensively manipulated using Lightroom's adjustment brush. I chose to use the brush rather than a gradient filter to lower the exposure of the sky because of the foreground trees spanning the height of the photo. I also added some blue to the water as that was a bit yellow from the cloudy color temperature preset.
