Yes, I freely admit I took a picture and crowbarred it into a concept to make it fit either challenge. For some reason I would have preferred to enter the other challenge but this was the best idea I could think of.

Had to compress this a heck of a lot to get under the file size limit.

Editing:
in lightroom: WB, crop, contrast, exposure boost, a touch of exposure recovery, clarity, vibrance, contrast, then twiddled with the sliders for orange, blue and aqua, and added a touch of sharpening.

Opened up in PSP, and added a touch of USM, then added borders and text.

Love all the textures here but it seems to be lacking contrast on my screen.

I like this shot, but the missive that you brought
to it gives at least a 2 point bump! Well Done!

This would have been one of my favorites if the border had been bigger and the text was centered.
