sunset instead of fireworks

tonight my husband and I went to the beach to enjoy the sunset as a replacement for the fireworks we're going to be missing out on.
I'd say this was a good swap.



I played around with picasa & picnik to merge the two silhouette pictures together.

k so I obviously don't have a great photo editing program, but picnik is great in a pinch! 
I first used picasa to line the two pictures up so the water line would be even, then I opened the picture up in picnik and cropped the image so it would all be even.
Then I used the cloning tool to merge the sky and water together & went over it with the the wrinkle remover setting.
I then used one of the glowy effects to warm it up and blend it a little more.
& picnik is great with the before and after frame so you can see how it progressed!
I love you picnik.

I think you did a fabulous job, I for one am not that savvy with photo editing yet, hopefully one day I will be!
