Sharpened it. Brought up a layer and desaturated the layer at 50% excluding the water. Applied layer. Proceeded to use "shadows and highlight" as well as "brightness and contrast" to alter the play of light, and give definition to certain areas. Used Topaz Denoise to kill noise created in that process. Added a sepia photo filter layer at around 40% opacity excluding the water. Combined Layers. Played with sharpening again. Proceeded to do some dodging and burning of select areas. Resized photo. Topaz Denoize again, followed by some additional dodge and burn. Probably processed this way beyond what it needed to be. LOL.

The tilt adds something... too bad it's come to this. We hope for better times.
