This picture is a crop from a picture on Lydia's stream. I really like that picture for the colourful reflections on the water so I decided to "create" another picture from it!

I first cropped it horizontally and quite severely. The next step was to restore the horizontal line, of which I have to admit that I didn't do a good job since it's still tilted slightly toward the left. The colours, the exposure and the softness were tweaked to give a warmer tone and a more abstract look, but not too heavy-handed to loose the beautiful ripples in the water. Various parts in the lower third were given more contrast to bring out different colours in the highlights (they look like metallic confetti). I also had plan to obliterate the birds into the bright reflections but, by then, my aging eyes had screamed for reliefs ...

(Coming across the water was the voice of Édith Piaf singing "Milord"...)
