The shells and seaweed added a nice touch to the image. The detail of the ripples in the sand is great.

Really gorgeous.

I am interested in hearing more about the process of adding graduated filters if you're willing to describe it. I use PS 7.0

Wonderful POTD, Mike! Great sharpness and depth of field. I, too, am interested in learning about the graduated filters in PS. What version of PhotoShop do you need to use these filters? Congratulations on your excellent POTD!

Hi thanks for all the interest. This is how I made the simulated graduated color filters first go to layers and create a gradient fill layer I used a Linear from black to clear then changed the black to a dark color of your choice. Second change the mode to overlay and change the opacity to suit.Hope this helps
