The original did not turn out quite how I wanted, so I adjusted the curves to get the water and clouds to have some colour in them, and then merged it with the original. (I also sharpened a bit)
Keep in mind that this is not supposed to be an accurate representation of how it looked that day. I like drama!

Merged:

Then the sand looked a bit boring to me, so I burned it a bit:

I noticed that I might have overdone it a bit, so I turned it back a notch:

Nice capture, Carrots! Still, I find the blue of the sea a bit much stark for the overall moody atmosphere...so, I applied some photo filter. Hope you don't mind!

You did what I tried to do originally. What filter did you use?

This photo looks different on each of the 3 LCD monitors I use. LCD's are the enemy of the photographer! I am thinking of taking my old CRT out of storage again. :-(

It was 'deep yellow' as far as I remember... You can adjust the degree according to your desire. However, I applied it selectively. So, select the area firstyou would like to apply it or you might as well do an overall job, which could yield a more pleasingresult perhaps : )
