This is the original picture we had to edit:
1.) I played with the levels darkening the dark clouds, water and boat and lightening the sky.
2.) I used played with colors until the water and dark clouds were the right shade and the light sky stayed the same beautiful shade of orange that it was in the original, except I brought out the color more.
3.) And lastly I used the sharpening tool (which on picnik is called "mascara") to sharpen the whole image, especially the boat, water and light clouds.
See, I told you this barely needed any editing at all!
