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.

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.

At the close of the Challenge, the Challenge Master will select a Winner and Runners-up.

The Winner of the challenge is honoured as the Master of the next Challenge.

Please Note: Entrants are encouraged to enter their best efforts even if this means replacing versions. Please do this by exchanging your latest effort with the image you wish to remove. You may note the replacement in a comment in the edited posting.

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 honour passes to the next Runner-up.

Used raw file. Edited it first in DxO PL2 then in Elements. Iteration no. 6: I've not been happy with any of my previous iterations, so I thought I'd try Kodachrome film emulation in DxO's Filmpack 5. I think maybe I like this somewhat better.

Lost the chopped off steps and straw umbrella. Fiddled around with color and contrast etc. The big cluster of umbrella things are kinda spoiling the view - lol. The light is really flat so I painted some in and out to make it more interesting, or maybe I just made it look a bit weird.

Well like gwyndionjhr says the person running the contest at the moment decides the winners and runner ups.
As a contestant just make the best version you can.
I feel that it is a good opportunity to try new things and learn from the other participants. Practice makes perfect so they say.
There are times when you submit a great entry and don’t get a mention.
Not to worry, if you keep at it the recognition will be there.
As you can see in this contest there are already a lot of different looking entries that will make it hard for me to judge. So feel free to add your entry and make it even harder to judge.

Edited in Affinity Photo for iPad. Brightened up the image, increased saturation, vibrancy and contrast to give a warmish-reddish hue. After this I selected the sky and applied more saturation to bring out the reddish hues to hopefully give the impression that reddish color on the huts is due to the lighting from sky.

Levelled the horizon to keep the sea from flowing out of the frame, cropped 16:9 to get the horizon into the thirds, and played a little with the colours and saturation to get a little more of the nice afterglow in.
