I actually prefer the first shot, unedited. I like the subtle colors over the monochrome versions, and I like the muted feel to it which fits the scene imo.

The Topaz adjusted version was a bit too much for me, it looks unnatural and doesn't fit a foggy morning, plus the artifacts introduced to the dock distracted.

I think its a nice image, very calm and tranquil.

Many thanks for your comments! I was wondering if the subtle colours were in reality a little too strong... I mean, I wonder if I should have desaturated the colour just by a hair. Sorry to sound so perfectionistic! Thanks again. Ned

I like the selective monochrome but applied it to an HDR version to make the pier pop more. The original has been heavily over-sharpened though I think which makes the water look messy.

Many thanks, but I thought the photo could use a little contrast and I added some texture to it...

How about another option: a one click adjustment of the "night effect filter" using PhotoFiltre software.
