Starting from a film scan (Kodak Ektar 100), I decided to:
- inverting the orientation of the clouds, to align it with the coastal feature
- tightening the framing, removing some empty sand
- enhancing colour and contrast around the bucket and the spade, with luminosity masks
- warming the colour of the overall scene
I like the final result much better.
