On the beach

Here are some photographs I took on the beach. I have enhanced them in Photoshop Elements.
This is the original picture I took of the sea. I was struck by the layers of colour caused by the shallow water over areas of sand and seaweed.

By adjusting the levels of light and contrast I have brought out the different colours. The range of hues is wonderful. Click on the picture for a close-up.

Here I added a 'motion blur' layer, but adjusted its opacity so some of the sparkle shows through.

The next couple are of seaweed.

All sorts of creative ideas are going through my head when I look at these.

So we guess he has gone home, but we are not sorry that he is not living next door!
