Edit Me Week 13

Wow, what an amazing image we have to edit this week!!! Thanks Amber!
I knew that I was going to enjoy playing with this image and boy did I, but strangely I though I might end up doing more than I actually did. Take a look:

Here's the before image:

My edit:

In ACR I knew I wanted to bring out the gorgeous blues of the water and sky. So, I cooled the image (increasing the blues on the temperature slider) and I thought that had a GREAT effect to the overall image! After getting the color I was looking for I just amped it up a bit by increasing the exposure, blacks, contrast, vibrance and saturation. Then once I brought it over to PSE7 I only added text. Now, I'm not one to usually add any kind of text to my image, but this one just screamed out for a powerful quote! I began thinking of one that would the Internet for a few minutes, then realized- HELLO, my Pinterest quotes board! And bingo, I found the one I had been looking for. I hope you find it as powerful as I do. I'm totally in love with this entire image. =)
