Adobe Lightroom 3 - The perfect New Zealand beach

To achieve this image I did a number of things in Adobe Lightroom 3:
• I lightened the whole image
• I used a gradient filter to recolor the sky
• The foreground has been desaturated
• The figure and post have been sharpened
The image works at a number of levels but relies heavily on the limited use of color and simple composition. The horizontal horizon line and water ripples add a calm feeling to the composition.
