I took this back in August when I was in the UK running my Creating Dramatic Images workshops, and despite appearances to the contrary it was actually a very warm day: loads of people were swimming, kids were splashing along the water's edge, but this poor lad looked like he was about to freeze to death. As such I decided to process it to make the weather and sea look a lot colder: changing the scene to match his mood.
