I used a blue/gold Cokin filter and and graduated neutral density filter. You can't use the polarizer and ND on the same mount because the polarizer twists, so I held the other filter in front.
PP, Luko unsharp mask technique, selective color, slightly desaturate the magenta out of the rock, contrast masking, light NI, gradient map on luminosity, faded to 4% and curve Burned the higlights in the water and played with levels to brighten the sky, then ran NI stronger and masked out its effects on various parts of the image like rocks and out in the middle of the bay and horizon.
Post challenge: Woo hoo on my page three!
Here is my second choice, same shot but with a twist of the polarizer.

Joe, Fantastic beach shots in your portfolio. I guess I hadn't seen them all. You won't be offended if i purchase a blue/gold polarizer?? ;)
