Sea Shells by the Sea Shore

I took this image of the shells yesterday when I took some other still life images for photo manipulations I have planned. I've tried a few times to get the perfect combination of shells and the light falling on them just right and this time it worked (imho) perfectly.

The water and splashes were added. Below is the original image:
I like it and it's pretty but it lacks the drama of the eidted one. I added water reflections, textures, the splashes, colour adjustments and highlights/shadows to create the drama.

All images/textures/brushes my own or bought. Edited with Photoshop.

All my images are available on Redbubble, Artflakes, Society6 and Bluecanvas as prints, cards, posters, skins for laptops, Blackberry, iPhones and other phones (for the skins go to Bluecanvas). You can now also get most of my images on cushion covers (go to Society6 for these).

All available on Society6
