Editing The View of a Lake on Photoshop:

Before

After

  1. Zoom in on the image to 37%
  2. Decide what should we focus on first: the exposure, lighting, color or balance
  3. Focus on the color and give each three components within that area a percentage to prevent overexposure
  4. Second aspect is the exposure which has an even level of lightness and darkness
  5. Lighting is our final process for this photo and we used three enhancement levels to darken the water and sky
