May you find peace out of daily workload
Happy Holidays.

:giggle: This image was actually digitally processed, well, though not all are, but this one is specially done.
The water was actually a very pale torquise, so i decided to channel it into blues, well for the flowers, the highlights were already within the core, just that the intensiveness wasn't there, i did dodged some higlights into it, blending it naturally with the actual highlights. oh, and yes, the shadows were brought to life with some toning graduation.
Some tools in PS that you might want to try out is Selective Colours, Shadows & Highlights
These are the tools that I'm constantly playing with, and they are good in retaining the natural feel of the image.
Hope you get a rough idea of how it was done .. ;P

i also use a lot of shadows & highlights. i'm satisfied with how my PS skills are developing, although i do need a lot more practice. i've just had my SLR for 3 months. camera raw 4.0 has this neat new option called "vibrance". did you try it out?

stunning tones and texture, good use of the focal length
may have used a larger aperture but it works well here :clap:

:aww: Thank you!

Ah, well, you see, this lens tend to render bokeh very well, and it tends to solitate spot objects, so I didnt have much of a choice but to open up the aperture..

Thanks again!
