I took this image over the summer during a trip to Long Island, and had pretty much left it for dead in my folder of misfit images.  That is until I started playing around with the new Perfect Effects 4 from OnOne Software.  I rarely use textures in my images, but with this shot the applied texture helped fill in for what was originally a somewhat boring sky, giving it new life.

    That texture adds a lot to this shot – gives it a timeless feel. Neat!

    The texture and subdued colors work great here, Stephen. Makes this look like an old postcard from decades ago.
