I liked the shallow S curve of the seawall. In Lightroom I used the HSL panel to selectively adjust the colours. Basically I set all of the saturation levels to zero creating a grayscale image. I increased the saturation in the key colours: blue green and magenta until I got a pleasing effect. I adusted the blue and green luminosity to darken the sky and grass. I created two virtual copies; one I reduced the exposure by 3 EV; the other I increased the exposure by 3 EV. I used the Lightroom Photo Merge/HDR to blend the original and its two copies into a single image. I finished with some sharpening and clarity tweaks.
