Beach Reflection – ProjectEdit365 – 04 Nov

The original was too blue for a fall sunset picture. I warmed it up a bit. I also lowered the clarity but used an adjustment brush on the reflection and the waves to increase their sharpness and clarity. I ended with a small vignette. Here’s the original:

I didn’t mess that much with the color of the water and sky because I wanted the focus to remain on the boy. I increased the vibrance a little. The original:
