I wasn't planning to enter, but due to the holiday and a snow day, I've had some time I didn't plan to have, and I didn't decide to enter until about seven hours before rollover. I thought this photo looked relaxing, so I went with it.

The main photo was rotated to level it and cropped square. Levels, Shadow/Highlight, contrast, vibrance, Nik Define2 to reduce noise, healing brush to remove some birds (I think they were birds).

Text: created a solid black document in Photoshop and added the text. I then took a photo of the screen for each piece of text. Used the lasso tool to select the text and on a new layer, pasted that in. Selected the black areas and deleted them.

Sharpened and resized.

I was asleep during voting but woke up when I saw this beauty. The is one of two pictures that got my highest vote. I thought a ribbon would follow for you.

I liked this - it was good, but I fell asleep while voting on it so I don't know what I gave it. :P ...oh look, a 7. :)

I hope the text isn't text. This is one of my top picks.
