This challenge had its fair amount of ups and downs. Ups because a few cool ideas came to mind and downs because I couldn’t execute on them. This picture was a result of – ‘Let’s just enter something!’ type feeling. Extra thanks to my wife - Marta for the last minute push!

Cropped, rotated, adjusted exposure level +1.25, small increase in temperature, saturation of reds +11, luminance of reds +47, un-sharpen mask (radius 2, amount 100%), noise ninja, perfectum 40%, save for web.
