For the beautiful to me challenge.
I used [this scan] from Bokura Ga Ita, as you can see it is quite dull and blurry. I tried to enhance the colour and clean the scan somewhat. I think I succeeded with the colours, but not so much with the scan quality. I tried blurring areas, duplicating the scan, different things like that. I edited the colours and used some overlays too.
I suppose I did more good than bad ^^'
Anyway, as far as the challenge goes, my 'beautiful thing' are warm cosy evenings, shared with friends and loved ones to take the winter chill from the air. Happy times during the mid-winter nights when it gets dark early. With plenty of conversation, tea and toast to go round! *smiles*
