Edit Me ~ Summer Show Off {Week 5}

I edited a photo taken one evening as we were leaving a restaurant in Florida,
close to where we hide out for a 'near' week on the Gulf Coast of Florida.

The photo was taken with my phone camera, 
it was dusk and we were racing back to our cottage to walk
the beach before the sun totally set.

Original Photo
Cropped, used healing brush tool to eradicate flood light
Adjusted levels and contrast
Added a cooling photo filter
Adjusted the levels again; and
Added two textures

Edited Photo
 Manasota Key has quite a nostalgic feel with old fashioned cottages along the beach,
sorta throws you back to an atmosphere reminiscent of the 50's
so I decided to carry through and finish off the piece as an old photo.

We missed our walk on the beach ... got back just as the sun set!
But it was a beautiful evening with a magnificent sunset, whether we were on the beach or not!
