Thanks for looking and commenting Frank and Wayne.   Regarding the not level issue, my first operation in PS was

ripples.  Glass like water on that inlet is rare.  The physics and underlying math of that phenomenon is a bit

edge on it that despite my efforts, Frank is right and it /is cockeyed. Arghhh.  
Once in a while the simplest explanation is correct.  I will recheck in PS.

Disagree, looks perfect to me.

I also did take artistic license and added a layer with a 35 pixel Gaussian blur with 20% opacity to enhance 
the glow a smidge.  I think Frank may be correct and I should trim the highlights just a tad on the 
castle after that procedure as it  led to some loss of detail due to the enhance "glow".  
 For images I rather like, I now save the PSD file so I can review after a few days as problems may be

I find the lighting far more upsetting/distracting. That's where I'd take artistic license. Don't seem to be able to download full size, so I left it a bit messy.
