A simple edit over my morning coffee. One new feature I like to use is the color equalizer module to slightly raise the saturation of blues and darken blues to simulate the look we may get from using a polarizing filter on the camera’s lens. The older color zones module does the same but I presume there is a reason they brought out the newer color equalizer module.

Somewhat moderate edit, bit of a crop and slight strengthening to the colors and contrast with a view toward depth. But I tried to not totally destroy the early- / pre-spring pale blue sky and brown foliage.

ART 1.21.1

Disclaimer: this is - per your request - what I would do.
Given the title, I would expect more highlands, less trees and reflections. [OK, I know that this is in the Highlands portion of Scotland]. I tried many crops, but found myself irritated by the placement of the trees and their reflections. Yet trying to make the trees the main subject wit the beautiful white-capped mountains behind didn’t work for me either. Hence, a panorama, trying to give the feel of a broad vista of gently sloping mountains.
