For you Peter.

I can only hope that it will transport you to a different place...if only for a brief second.

Post challenge:
I'm really happy how this did and that Peter enjoyed the shot. :)

For those interested, here's the color version. It's pretty but I thought it looked too postcardy and predictable so I converted it to B&W.

Thank you Peter for your strength and courage, you're really an inspiration.

The processing makes it look spooky. Jaws nearby? voted earlier

The processing would have made for an amazing image if you'd just blended this back with the original. As it is, this is too heavy handed IMO, but still pretty awesome.
