Image made in the analogue era, which I have hardly been able to improve since then. The high clouds, with their suggestive brushstrokes in the sky and their reflections flowing over the water (thanks to the lack of wind) are the necessary dynamizing and aesthetic elements to complete the whole. The polarizer was used to the minimum in arder not to erase the desired reflections.
Adjustments in Lightroom of the scanned slide as if it were a Raw file, with initial change of settings, correcting definition and lost colours during the scanning and applying a moderate gradient. Se/ection and correction by zones in Photoshop to mitigate lens and scanning failures (eliminating the dominant blue in the clouds), focussing and (selective) noise reduction with «dust and scratches».
