Here are few things I did before I finally produced this image. PS4, Photoscape and Picasa are mostly the photo software I use in post-processing photographs.
Yes, I cropped the top part of the image in order to raise the horizon a little bit up. I wanted the horizon to be higher than this but the result would be that much of the top part of the trees would be gone – which I didn’t want.
I also smoothened the sea and sky; and tried to make sure the details in the land weren’t much affected. I mixed the sky from two (original and another) for more texture and motion up there. To look natural/normal, I adjusted the colours and opacity. Sharpening was applied to some parts of the image as well.
