The reasons for my being, the twirling of my heart. They make my eyes smile and my soul shine.

As far as the challenge goes, I could be way off base here. I just thought I'd take a different approach this time around.

Might I get smited? It's quite possible, most likely probable. Such is life, of which mine I happen to quite enjoy mostly in part, due to these three guys.

Tra-la-la-la-la :-)

-rotated 180degrees and cropped
-levels adjustment layer
-curves adjustment layer
-selective color adjustment layer, to drop the yellow cast in the clouds and add red instead.
-brightness/contrast layer, raising contrast slightly
-resized, added guassian blur, fade guassian blur (probably didn't need it, but thought I'd be safe then sorry. Still may be sorry), added border, sfw.
