With temperatures below zero I need a little reminder of summer.
The photo was taken in one of my favourite haunts in the French Vosges at an altitude of roughly 1000 metres.
It has quite some imperfections and should allow a good variety of options to get your creative cells working in many different directions.
I'm looking forward to seeing your creative ideas.

Sorry I can't provide you with a raw file.

Contest will close sometime around Sunday midnight (GMT).

72-Hour Post-Processing Challenge Rules

The Challenge Master provides an image to be "improved" upon by way of post-processing, as well as a closing date for entries. The master may provide multiple images for challenges involving blending procedures common to most software packages (e.g., HDR, Panorama).

Entrants are to post their entries, visible in this thread, at a resolution of 1000 to 1600 pixels in the longest dimension, prior to the closing date. Each entrant is allowed two entries in the Challenge. Please mark entries clearly by number. Please Note: Entrants are encouraged to enter their best efforts even if this means replacing versions. Please do this by editing the post containing the image you wish to change and note the replacement in a comment in the edited posting.

At the close of the Challenge, the Challenge Master will select a Winner and Runners-up.
The Winner of the challenge is honored as the Master of the next Challenge.

Notes:

The image used for the challenge must be the Challenge Master's own image. The image is posted solely for the purpose of this Challenge; it is not posted to invite critique or criticism nor for other uses. If Entrants post their entries at a photo sharing site, they should credit the owner of the original image.

"Improve" is a subjective term, and may include many creative ideas, as well as traditional "fixing". The Challenge Master agrees that Entrants may make any changes they deem fit in their entries.

Entrants are strongly encouraged to share the tools and techniques used for their entries, however this is not a requirement for entry.

As we all know, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. The Challenge Master is encouraged (but not required) to state the criteria used to decide upon a Winner. While we may not all agree with the result, the Challenge Master's decision is final. Please refrain from posting adverse comment.

If the Winner is unable to post a new Challenge within five days, the honor passes to the next Runner-up.

Very beautiful scene captured perfectly. I tried to locate the imperfections, but was not successful. So I did some simple editing, all very minor: mainly a little increase in contrast and very minor perspective correction.

First attempt... a fairly straightforward adjustment, which was trickier than I thought it would be. Done in Luminar 4:

Nice picture, not much that was need to do with it.
Done in DxO PL3, straightened the picture, cropped a bit, added Clearview and lowered the Gamma.

Attempt No. 1
A VERY nice Image. IMO almost no correction is required
So I played with Affinity Photo. Tone mapping, Color Selection, Contrast adjustments

I realise this is a little extreme (and gothic) and may get me banished from the forum on day one, but it's my style and rather than try and second guess what would be required, I just did what I do. :popcorm2::laugh:

First of all welcome!
I really hope that this forum never bans anyone for their processing style!
BTW your style is interesting and different, and that is good.

There are a lot of great entries, so I did something a bit different on this.
In Photoshop, I used the excellent content aware fill to disappear the path and the building and car. After doing this I used the clone stamp tool to get rid of repetitions in the fill. I darkened the sky and lightened the lake. I don't know if this is better but just different. Maybe this is how it looked before people moved
in.
