    I like these sunset shots, Shelley and I were at Veterans Park yesterday. trivia: “Dusk” comes after Twilight which comes after Sunset, hence the saying “From dusk to dawn.”

  • Thanks for the correction re “dusk”—didn’t know that (I’ve corrected the description). Thanks for the comment!

    Terrific painterly feel to this piece……excellent mood as well – good work Kevin.

  • Thank you so much, Julian! With this sitting here for a day or so, I think I’m gonna go back and lighten up the foreground and lifeguard station. Ya think?

    It could use a little (tiny) tweaking…but as mentioned – the feel/mood is very much there.

  • Ok, I tweaked it. You can see the original in the frame (on the right). Is this an improvement?

    Now this is awesome! Check out that sun.. like we are looking at it through Venetian blinds! Great muted tones, so summery and warm. Love it mate!!

  • Funny you should comment on this one, Andrew—I have YOU specifically to thank for it. Although I have been culling my image collection (to preserve hard disk space) and spending time with older neglected images, this was the first image I returned to after I read your journal, The Importance of Reinvention. I “reinvented” this image with two separate textures and some masked Levels adjustment. Thank you for your comment here and your overall inspiration!!
