The challenge topic set by Sandy was purple… Well flowers are purple like the image below… but for my main image, above, I thought I would process an image and give it a purplish hue feel to the sky and sea. I did this by using a gradient filter on the whole image and then using the hue/saturation and luminance targeting tool changed the properties till I got the hue I wanted.
