Before/After. All I've done is applied two graduated filters - one on the sky to darken it and bring out the colours and contrast, one on the ground to lighten it and increase saturation a bit.

Shot in RAW on a Nikon D7000 with the kit 18-55mm lens, processed in Adobe Lightroom.

I also need to point out that that's not a reflection of the sunburst in the water. The sunburst happens with the sun comes through a small space, like tree branches, and it's only visible at a certain angle. It just so happened that when I took that photo, the sun's reflection in the water must have hit a tiny space between some rocks that also caused THAT lightsource to make the burst shape. I have other photos over the water with only the single burst.
