A few weeks ago, work brought me to Valencia. On the second day of the conference I visited, I managed to "sneak out" a bit earlier, to be just in time to visit the landmarks in the City of Arts and Sciences. In particular, these well known landmarks as designed by the famous architect Santiago Calatrava. 

I was lucky enough that there were some clouds in the sky. The setting sun lid up the skies in a fiery red, mirroring nicely in the "Helmet" (the building on the right). While shooting this photo, I used a filter to obtain a longer exposure to have more of a mirroring effect in the water. 

In post, I increased the saturation (slightly), to add more stress to the orange in the skies, while also applying a touch of dehaze to add more crispness to the clouds.
