Photographs taken on St. Vincent Island which sits in Apalachicola Bay, Florida in the Gulf of Mexico, USA. Also known as The Forgotten Coast.
This was a gathering of pelicans on a warm summer day on the sand and sea in June.

One Summer Dream – ELO
an alltime favorite band

Photos shot with Nikon CP8400. Post processed in PSCS2.
These are the originals I started with and with a bit of cloning & healing brushes I created a panorama.

On a separate layer I used DAP to give a painterly effect then blended this layer onto the original. Also processed using the Orton Effect on an overlay blended layer.
Used PS cloud brushes by ThisElectricHeart
Thank you. . .

I is for Island & Inlet
