This is another photo in my campaign to cheer myself up over winter. This was taken at the Grand Hyatt Resort on Kauai, in November 2001.
The scenery is obviously beautiful and even has a rainbow. It is a wonderful memory from a marvelous trip. However, it was taken during late afternoon so the lighting was poor. How to save my lovely scene?
I used Picasa to make my own postcard from Hawaii. I experimented with a lot of Picasa effects before I was happy with the final photo. I was able to brighten the photo by increasing the color saturation. I used comic book to give a lighter and more linear effect. I also increased both light and shadows to heighten contrast. And I completed it with a double frame all in white.
