It’s spring break time and unfortunately I’ll be stuck in Michigan with our wonderful early spring weather. However, I have my old photographs to warm me up including this one taken on a spring break a couple of years ago in North Myrtle Beach, S.C. Unlike yesterday’s image taken at the same location, today’s image is a bit warmer and doesn’t have that post-apocalyptic look to it.

Processing of this image was fairly simple. I used onOne’s Focal Point software to add a bit more blur to the surrounding edges and used Lightroom to add just a bit of vignette. A slight change of contrast helped bring out the color a bit more as well.

Feel free to leave your comments below. Thanks!
