Oh hell, why not....probably shouldn't but I'm gonna anyways. Just a leaf floatin' in some water.

I rarely shoot in RAW and almost never shoot in manual mode and did both here, so really just an experiment and practice in both. Wasn't shooting for this challenge but thought this might fit. Had a color and B&W version ready to go, decided to use the color one. Probably the wrong choice, that's usually the case. :)

Converted from RAW with minor adjustments to contrast and color temp.

-rotated & cropped
-levels adjustment
-curves adjustment
-contrast/brightness adjustement raising both of them.
-boosted saturation just a bit
-resized and USM

I think that's pretty much it. Carry on....

I think the subtle blue highlights add to this. Nice work!
