My contribution to this week Friday theme.

Since getting too much sun can be damaging to your skin, resting in the shade could be very boring if you don't do anything else. So reading a good book could save your life and your vacation.

When I was a Club Med G.O., I used to tell people on vacation: "It's better to go back at home half tan than half peeled."

I took this picture last year while on vacation. Subject was under an umbrella so the sand on the edge is in direct sunlight and very bright. Since the JPG image information was only 8 bits, I didn't recover highligth details. I tried to recover some details, but image turned dull gray very quickly. Next time I'll shoot in RAW mode.

Hi Alain,

Very nice candid shot, crisp and clear.
Intersting POV, the tight crop works well here.
A nice contribution to the theme...


On a eu un peu la même source d'inspiration!En plein dans le thème!

Bonjour Alain,

you definitely have a talent of combining a theme with a pretty subject - I remember your last theme post too. :)
The colors of the photo look pretty natural/credible, did you do more pp on this besides the try to recover highlights ?

Best regards,

  • Great

Bonjour Alain
Recevoir la breeze de la mer tout en etant a l'ombre avec un bon livre est un des vrai plaisirs des vacances, sauf que sur le dos on a les bras fatigue assez vite.
Bonne capture pour le theme.
