One photo I took while on vacation.
Played a bit with levels and hue/saturation, resized, neat image, some healing brush and added border.
Enjoy!

post challenge: thanks for all the comments
as for how I did this, it was very simple, I did nothing. I do not know why, but the footsteps were like this. Here is the original picture
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/35000-39999/35322/120/550826.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/35000-39999/35322/120/550826.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

After trying to take a shot similar to this the last time I was at the beach, I truly appreciate the effect that you have achieved. Or rather, stand in awe of it. Very nicely done!

Very cool! I also wonder are the footsteps really raised up or is that an illusion? It's soooo cool.

Love this! How did you get the footsteps to be reversed? Very lovely picture!

the back side of a beach photo? :-)

You perfected the concave/convex illusion here, creating something rock-solid permanent from something completely ephemeral. The well-balanced composition completes this effect to create something not only permanent, but classic.

The shadows make it look like the footsteps are raised above the surface instead of pressed below it. Very unique.

Like sand through an hour glass, so are the 10's of our life. Very cool - I think it's a ribbon contender.

Very neat. I love how the steps are popping out at you! 7

I've noticed this effect before, but it looks like the footprints are raised, not sunk in. Gives a cool illusion. 7

Very nice, I hope that you will explain how it was done after voting is over.

Clever, inverting the footprints. Nice composition.

Hmmm... How did you do that? I may be just plain stupid, but it looks like the footprints are pushing up rather than down. Very good image compositionally and the colors are neat. I really like the border too.
