Song: In My Life, The Beatles

I had actually deleted this (and several other) over-exposed image before I realized that I could salvage it for this challenge. Making it a high key image was simply a matter of increasing the contrast.

Many have commented that there are only three figures. Well, actually there is a seagull on the far left, but he's blurred too much to be recognizable :-)

This is in my top three of the challenge. Great feel to this image. A grand and humbling perspective. Bumping up. Back to add "in my life" - a favorite Beatles tune of mine. And adding this to my faves as well.
