It is also my entry in the Ephiphanie Picture it, photo contest! You can see the other entries and enter your own (until June 20th) over at their blog.
I was inspired by Brian Gaynor‘s recent posts, such as this one, where he applies post processing to his photography to create new and unique versions of his already beautiful photos.

Which change is your favorite?
