I like the ice on the top of the grasses in the water.

The image has a significant blue cast which I removed in this version. I think that seeing the true colors helps appreciate the image better :



Here is the original to make the comparison easier:

Nice, thanks for sharing.

This image would have been a good candidate for some selective DoF stacking.

Cheers,
Bernard

Alain, what tools did you use to remove the blue cast?  Just a "curves" adjustment?

Yes, curves.  Essentially, I color balanced the image so that it has a neutral grey point.  The original version did not.  The area in the image used for the neutral curves adjustment doesn't have to be middle grey.  It can be black or white or any value of grey as long as it is intended to be a neutral color.

I may also have adjusted the black and white points.  I don't remember exactly.  Once you have all 3 points set properly, you have a solid base to start working towards a master file.
