Where and What in The World? Wednesday

I'm back for "Where in the World?" Wednesday – but once again, I am asking a second question.

Where in the world (country) was I when I took this picture? And what four Photoshop enhancements did I used to make a more dramatic image? Please be as precise as possible when describing the enhancements. Precision counts when it comes to working on your images.

Winner (US only) gets a copy of my latest book, Field Guide to Digital Photography. You need to post your answer here.

No pros, please.
