You can't dampen the spirits!

Photo Information
British holiday scene, typical for this summer. Taken earlier this afternoon at Herne Bay. I liked the contrast between children playing and rain/storm clouds approaching.

I used curves to darken the sky and increase contrast with the sea, then selective colour to pull back the reds a little. Finally unsharp mask at 40% because I feel a lot of my shots are a little soft (probably my technique as it seems to be the case with both lenses).

Comments and suggestions welcome.
