Default Just Do it

Normally Calr this is not what I would post here but I think this is what you had in mind.

I had to look at this photo for awhile to figure out what qualified it for the challenge. Then I spotted the textured background. Very interesting. I would not have thought to do that. Nice job.

The texture really gives the picture a warm feeling.

A nice effect. It almost looks like a painting.

That image says so much even without the editing. Very nice.

Daz,
The textured canvas effect compliments the setting extremely well. On first glance I thought the fishing lines might have been an unecessary distraction but on closer inspection they actually add impact to the photo.

Not sure about the texture, but the picture itself is really beautiful... nice, calm atmosphere!

Thanks everyone for the comments but it accrues to me that I should post the original unedited photo.
