I played around with this in PS but don't feel as though I have got it right. Any C & T welcome as always.

Here's another. Same daughter, same river, different day.

The first I played around with, but feel I lost something. The original follows. Again any tips would be welcome.

And the original, a bit on the dark side.

Nice shot, but the foreground is a little rough looking.

I like the first one Syd - nice & simple. Is this your five year old ?

You lost some of the sky when you brightened it. What you need to do is use a curves adjustment to pump up the midrange without affecting the dark and light areas too much.

Or you can use a shadow/highlights adjustments, which is probably a bit easier.
