Two people enjoying a walk on the sand at Dixon Park beach in New South Wales, Australia. It was a warm and sunny afternoon and one of those days where even though it’s not Spring you start to feel that warmer air and know it’s just around the corner.

The image was captured using a Canon 450D and a 250 mm lens, then my own custom photographed textures were added in Photoshop Elements 7.

Going Coastal – Monday 29/11/2010

I enjoy the whole creative process from beginning to end and seek to discover and portray the world in all of it’s rich, intense colours and interesting forms, textures and subjects. I draw inspiration from the harmonious colour schemes often present in the natural environment when creating my Graphic Designs, or composing a Photograph or other work.

    Great treatment! The surf looks strong!

  • Thanks a lot Kim ! Believe it or not, they’re small waves in my area and it has to be two or three times that size before the surfers get really keen.

    Lovely image, Just d/loaded trial of elements 9 which allows layer masks, Great for textures and stuff, you gotta try it! Well done.

  • They have Layer Masks in PSE 7, though I don’t use them [ I probably should – especially for putting effects inside of text ! ] – I just create a new Layer and do similar stuff that way. Thanks for the compliment Ric !

    looks great Reflector, always superb texture in your work

  • Thank you Solomon ! It’s a texture I found in the garage and it’s turned out much better on top of a shot a few months ago – the colours in a scene can really affect things.

    According to the adobe site, the layer function they added is a different layer mask, As in it is the same as the ones found in the cs series. It doesnt show the same option under the v7 in the comparison chart. Check it out, maybe i have worded it wrong!

  • I’ll have a look at that. Thank you Ric !
