I used the adjustment brush to enhance the Dynamic Range. The white highlights are now whiter and the blacks blacker.

I played with the lights and darks to give some extra dimension to the photo.

The camera can't see pure white or black and transforms each into 18% grey. In order to get the proper tones in this situation you have to open up the Aperture between 1 1/2 and 2 stops.

I straightened out the vertical and horizontal lines to show the difference. We get used to divergence and convergence with normal digital photography and forget that in the old days with moveable lenses the lines were straight. To correct the normal perspective problems you can use Photoshop or in this case Capture One to change the angles. This can also be accomplished even better using a tilt shift lens.

This is a good shot to keep playing with. In this case I recolored the water and made it more glass like and made the snow lighting on the mountains. This process of painting with light means that the original photo is just a starting point.
