While flipping through old family photos, I came across a fantastic
one of light hitting the waves as the sun set. I've always wanted to try
capturing that 'sparkle' of light on water, and this was the perfect
opportunity. I upped the contrast slightly from the original photo, to
create a more dramatic and atmospheric composition, and enhanced the
purple, which I hoped would complement the golden sunlight.
The wave in the foreground was probably the hardest part, getting all
those little strokes to pull together convincingly. But I'm really
happy with the result, and I hope you enjoy it too!
