    Hi Jim,

    I like the composition of the city from there; looks like you were on Lake Union?

    There appears to be some distortion where the waterline meets the city, but
    that's an easy fix. Also, in the water about mid-image is what appears to be
    a salmon jumping (next to a smudge mark) but on closer inspection it looks more
    like a relic from something you cloned out?

    Not sure what program you processed it in, but if possible I would definitely
    reduce the blue saturation as well as overall saturation.

    Seattle is a beautiful city, but, I still avoid it like the plague...lol

    That is a tricky scene to work with, Jim. Pale bands top and bottom (sky and water) and a rather dark middle (buildings).

    And reducing the blue, as Mike suggested, will tend to make those areas lose what little details they have. But, he is correct in that the image does appear a little high in the blue range.

    Just work carefully. I might be tempted to use two Curves edits as Adjustment Layers and set the blend modes separately, one for Luminosity and one for Saturation or Colour perhaps.
