Very nice tutorial. This is a dumb question but how do you create a tutorial like that? Yes I know you can video tutorials but I just mean in that method. Is the process time consuming?

How exactly do you get the effect of light shimmering on top of the water?

there are various ways; soft brush or if done in a single layer then a bit of dodge tool may help~
