About the Image(s)

I'm in the process of transferring stuff from my old computer to a new one and I came across this photo from several years ago..It was taken with a hybrid Panasonic P&S, which is long gone! Anyway, I thought: Let me see what I can do with this, after all I've learned with PSA, competitions and classes.
After cloning out some people who were there, I had to correct the color in the sky with adjustment layers, color balance, curves, levels, sharpening. I then framed it. I was surprised that I liked it...Now for the New Year, I gave myself a challenge not to disregard those older photos, possibly
they can be brought back to life....maybe....maybe not...

You did a great job saving this picture from the Trash. I especially like the way the purple flowers point up toward the lighthouse.   Posted: 01/11/2020 17:55:54

Great image. I love the detail of the foreground that is balanced so well with the background. Perfect symmetry. You could also submit this as a creative image utilizing an oil painting or a water painting.   Posted: 01/12/2020 19:58:17
