The Domino Effect :: 0.6S GND Lee Filter

I always love a symmetrical shot but rarely process one just for the fun of it :) The original shot for this is so-so & looks rather boring to me therefore this is one great chance to do a flip for a more visual impact. Bet you guys can't really tell the difference rite even tho i've left some parts the way it is so you can see :D

- Added 2 layer mask effect of 'curves' for contrast in sky & water

- Added 1 layer mask effect of 'level' to lightly lighten & enhance the flow

- Added 1 layer mask effect of 'saturation' (blues) to whiten the water

- Added 1 layer mask effect of 'saturation' (blues) to brighten the sky

- Duplicated & horizontally flipped another layer mask of the poles to create symmetry effect

- Applied 'healing brush tool' & 'spot healing brush tool' on the poles to make them look different
