Here Floats Captain Culpepper Clyne #Disney #photo

"He braved the sea and all her wrath, but drowned on land while taking a bath."

 

Still trying to make lemonade out of the lemons in my photo library.

 

For today's 'Fun Friday' project I wanted to do something with this shot of the Captain's final resting place.

 

The original was quite a lemon indeed. Hastily composed with no thought given at the time of capture. Since this was my only shot of the Captain though I didn't want to delete it.

 

Instead I went for a tighter crop to improve the composition and make the shot (hopefully) more interesting.

 

Then, after messing around a bit with saturation I decided to see how the shot would look in a dark, B&W.

 

Things started to come together from there, as I though the shot was more befitting the captain.

 

Last, I imported the photo into OnOne's PhotoFrame Pro and added a very slight border to hint at some water damage.

 

Again, it's all about making the lemonade. Hopefully I was somewhat successful. What do you think?

 

Thanks for looking & have a great weekend!

 

-Alan
