For the first assignment, i chose the Color Changer assignment in the visual assignments portion of DS106 . This was the original photo. I just looked up pretty beach sunset pictures in Google and picked the one I liked the best. In order to do this I found a free website that allows you to change the colors, exposure etc of the picture. The website is called PicMonkey. PicMonkey gives you different options to crop and change the canvas color. You can also rotate, sharpen, resize the picture and you have a variety of options under the exposure tab and the color tab.
What I did was very simple. I went to the color tab and turned down the temperature to -100. Then I went to the exposure tab and turned up the contrast to 10 and shadows to 23. This was my result.
