PicMonkey Monday: Spilled Pixie Dust

Today's PicMonkey Monday is highlighting with some more subtle editing than my previous two.  This walkway at Epcot lights up at night with what I always call "spilled pixie dust."  It's fun and creative, and always get the attention of young and old alike who walk by.  However I've always found it a challenge to photograph. 

Before - Not too shabby to begin with. I always have a hard time getting a good picture of this sidewalk but using the DSLR really improved what I walked away with.  The ground was wet so it had a nice shimmer to begin with that really helped.  The colored lights reflecting down from something neon gave some additional interest.

After - Just a little color saturation, bokeh, and a soft edge makes this one of my new favorites!  I've been thinking about making it my new desktop wallpaper.  The color saturation reminds me of one of my favorite Disney photographer's images. Though I'm sure he would have done it without the addition of a dreamy sparkle.
