PP Challenge #242 Seascape

Hi all,

It's my pleasure to host PP Challenge #242 Seascape. Well, it is actually Lake Michigan, but you get the idea. Given this is a holiday week for many of us here in the USA, I hope its ok to give this challenge a couple extra days and end it on Wednesday, 29 November, 9 p.m. US Eastern Standard Time.

This image was taken on a trip this past summer. We visited Holland Beach State Park in Holland Michigan that evening. The photo was with a K-s2 and Sigma 18-250mm combo. Hopefully it will peak your interest enough to take on the challenge this time around. Can't wait to see your what you all choose to do with it.

Here's the challenge image. I hope the image and links show up and work properly:




The DNG RAW can be found here:IMGP3472
The PEF RAW can be found here: IMGP3472

*******************************

A note to the winner: Please copy and post this info into the next challenge.

Very cool entries so far! The original image has pretty muted colors and a simple subject, which is what makes it a challenge, in my view.

I've tried to keep it close to the original, just a little crop and straighten and a slight play with the tones, with a bit of a lift.

Cropped, straightened, goodbye boat (remember HULK hates people), decreased shadow on rock and tree, enhanced clarity on just those areas, increased sharpness on just those areas, then the water and sky given some Topaz Simplify magic;

What's left of that tree seems pretty darn lonely out there. Going for a bit more minimalist on this one.
(Yeah, getting rid of texture and details seems a bit counter-intuitive, but I'm in that kind of a mood today.)

** edit: oops, I admit to d/l the file the other day, and submitting without really looking at the other entries. BruceBanner, I swear I didn't intentionally mean to steal your color pallette Nice entry, BTW

Straighten the horizon, played with the sky and got rid if smudges and halo around tree, also found out there are whales in the great lakes!
