OK... I'm gonna "bite" here!
First, I chose number 2.... cleaner action, eye contact, head angle... and his feet aren't obscured by the sand.
- Straightened the horizon
- Cloned out some white spots in the environment
- Adjusted levels just a tad
- Added muted "eye catch" in the direction of the light.
- Did a tiny bit of brightening (since Res always tells me that my stuff is too dark!)
Nothing I could do about the shoreline (?) intersecting his head?
SOOOOOO..... now I'm up for your critique, Res!!!!!
