Took around 200 pictures at the beach - it was about 30 degrees out and my mittens were not on my hands.

This was a tough one to choose - this was my other option:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/70000-74999/74663/120/753217.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/70000-74999/74663/120/753217.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Adjustment Layer for the sky and the beach, dodge and burning in areas, vignette, cloned out some sea shells, resize and add border.

I'm hoping for something in the mid 6's, but thats a dream - 5.9875 will probably be the finish.

With all respect to the others as I really like the footstep in the sand photos, this is by far the best in the comp. tones and POV really make this stand out from the others. Also its (pardon the pun) grittier than the others.

Nice shot and processing. It has a surreal/isolated feeling to it.
