First I straightened the image about 2 degrees clockwise. I was a little off kilter taking the picture. Then adjusted the levels and curves. The swimmers in the water were bothering me, so I cloned them out.
I’ve learned some things since then, one I would decrease the saturation after resizing. Another change, instead of sharpening I use the unsharpen mask, seems to work cleaner. But overall, I like the bottom version better, what do you think?
