Edit Me- Week 25

I am participating in the Edit Me Challenge.  This week's picture was provided by Desirae from Sommerfugl.  If you have a FB and Twitter account you can check her out. I don't have a Twitter account. Maybe someday I'll get one.

So here is my edit.


Here is the original provided by Desirae

I flipped the picture over and converted to B&W.  I liked picking up the extra details in the dune from the original left side.  I added some drama by darkening up the clouds. I added a little color back into the photo and adjusted my levels.  I added some wording after searching the internet for just the right quote I gave up and used my own line.  This picture made me feel like it was a dark and stormy day and the people at the bottom of the light house were family members looking out in the ocean for fishermen fathers and husbands to come home from sea.
