"Edit Me Challenge - Beach Sunset"

After

The picture for this week is from Stephanie of Behind the Camera and Dreaming.  The beachy sunset was already so pretty it was hard to decide what to do.  I decided that I wanted a panoramic feel with dramatic colors in the sky.  I first cropped to get a more panoramic feel, with a long width and a short height.  Next I sharpened and adjusted the levels.  Finally, I added a warmth layer and changed it to multiply at 100%.  I finally played around with the curves a bit on the warmth layer until I got just the right richness in the blue and oranges.  I would love to visit this beach at sunset.
