Angkor Moat

Angkor Moat

Water lily and weed-workers on the Angor Wat moat that surrounds the famous complex in Cambodia.

Quite a lot for a relatively simple shot: shadow/highlight, masked semi-transparent layer (soft-light) on the workers to maintain lighting detail, duplicated blended layer with Gaussian blur, levels, curves, noise reduction, smart-sharpen, and extensive manual cloning of dust-dimples on the water that were exaggerated by the sharpening process.
