Truly Showing Off...

It's a beautiful day on the Gulf of Mexico in the Florida Panhandle.  The sun is shining in a cloudless sky.  The waters are calm and Truly is showing off!

This photo collage was a challenge.  My original photo was taken on a beach in Destin FL a couple of weeks ago.  The water and sandy beach on the left side of the photo was duplicated and then added to the original photo.  The clone stamping tool was a big help smoothing out the sand and surf.   The tow rope was cut from a bit of clip art.  Assorted brushes used to create the wake.

As usual you did a wonderful job with retouching. I finally have a Mac and PSE 10 but I'm still not nearly as creative as you.
