I just started Photo Editing (Noob). Can anyone help me get photo effect like link1 from image "link2". Any help would be greatly appreciated.
NOTE: I'm not the best at landscapes but I suspect that the first image was taken using a long exposure and at a different time of day than yours. I would say that much of the first image was achieved in camera with minimal post-production.
I didn't think you could achieve the colours in the first link as too much editing would damage the data. It's difficult editing an image in JPEG format but this is what I did in Lightroom 4:
I can't post images directly on here but have linked my interpretation of the image here: http://imageshack.us/f/585/20121222001.jpg/
Hope it helps :)
