Don't know if this will fly or not. The shot is completely blown out by the sun being right above the frame and its a bit blurry. Also, as I decreased exposure a vignette began to appear. Did my best to keep it under control. DQ, here I come!

Even though it was an accident, I really like the shot. Its strikes me as very peaceful, and it fits the challenge well.

In UFRaw:
Reduced exposure to -0.3

In Gimp:
Increased saturation of cyan channel
Unsharp mask at defaults
Cropped image
Resized for web
