I gather this is the lake near Austin Texas.

Brandon,

What is the intent for the image? Otherwise it's hard to give feedback. It may be perfect for one purpose by not for another. Does the second picture come from the first? Is this a test for the quality of the lens?

Yes, Sir.

I was attempting to show the very old, and new (buildings) of Austin. It is one of the nicest locations where I can include a newer builder with the very old Austin power plant.

The second photo is separate, but it is the same building inside the photo.

The blues strike me as overdone, and I think the details in the building (in this one) could be brought out to better effect.

David,

Thank you for your thoughts.

To tone down the blue in the sky and water, I used a hue/sat adjustment layer. In the cyans and blues, I increased the lightness slider.

For the building, I used Topaz Detail.
