I took the shot on Carolina Beach on the day Hurricane Irene was moving up the East coast of the U.S, we had taken the brunt of it all night on the coast. We don't often get thick cloud cover here, so I headed to the beach and saw this couple walking along with their bright rain coats, I thought the little pop of colour would make a good picture with the muted colours of the backdrop. I used in total 6 curves for processing.

why we featured this image

Simon's image is a fantastic example of how a few, relatively simple changes can dramatically transform an image, particularly in terms of drawing the viewer's attention to the key elements within the scene.
