Photo Rehab Cover Makeover Redo: The Summer of Chasing Mermaids

Following a few comments from my response to this Cover Makeover Challange I decided to see what the cover would look with different backdrops.

As a reminder, here’s what we were given as the original:


It’s The Summer of Chasing Mermaids and here is a very brief excerpt from the author Sarah Ockler: The youngest of six talented sisters, Elyse d’Abreau was destined for stardom—until a boating accident took everything from her. Now, the most beautiful singer in Tobago can’t sing. She can’t even speak.

In my post (HERE) I picked this photo . . . 


. . . to generate this makeover . . .

I was, and still am pleased with that effort . . . 

. . . but the few comments I received nagged at me; did I err in my choice? Is there the possibility of using other shots for better results? Very few comments – only a few regular readers ever bother commenting. 

I took these two photos . . . 

Navarre, Pensacola,

. . . and mapped the layers from the original makeover onto them two photos.

Here’s what I came up with . . . .
