From this image, you wouldn’t know that the beach was crowded with people, relishing the first warm Spring day of the season ;-)

Have two similar images of this young fellow, decided to go with this ‘high-key’ (ahem! slightly too exposed!!) image, liked it better for the textured sand and barely visible horizon

Capturing people being people, and the finer details of four and two wheeled blingy classic automotives – two fave ‘topics’ of imagery :-))

    Love the story, as for the image – it gives such a fantastic emotion! It has the cold feel of old grainy movies.

  • Thank you very much :-)
    ‘Grain’ somewhat unintended, but do like how it turned out :-))

    Looks like a shot from the distant past Ell – ageless. High key works well for this ’un.

  • Thank you Rhoufi :-) … so glad I didn’t delete it before getting it home ;-)

    You have to look at pics on the big screen before you decide to I did a photo shoot last night and my fave pics on the little bitty camera screen are not very sharp on the big screen….there are still some good ones though!

  • “my fave pics on the little bitty camera screen are not very sharp on the big screen”

    Ohhh, how disappointing! Hate that too, especially when you think you’ve just captured a ripper image!! :-(
    Looking fwd to your ‘good ones’ then :-))

    this is good Ell…just a good blend with no horizon..love it:))

  • Thank you very much MrO :-)
    Liked this ‘over-exposed’ image better than the much darker one – worked this a just little (basic Canon software contrast tweak) to bring up the sand texture and improve the blacks … happy you like it :-))
