[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Just a few minutes after arriving in Cabo San Lucas, my wife and I went to the beach. And there she is, enjoying the warm evening breeze from the Pacific Ocean...

Digitized from a color negative, cropped to tighten the subject, worked on levels to give it a warmer tone.

Hi Pierre, what a wonderful picture ! She made a great entrance !


sorry out of points today

I realy love the foot prints. But would have been a bit better if you could have cropped so that your wife was to the right side. Would have much more interest as an image. I will show you what I mean...

Très belle rencontre entre la mer et ta femme. Presqu'un dialogue.
Une diapo très bien conservée et c'est surprenant ce que l'on peut en tirer aujourd'hui.
Beau travail.


Excellent photo...I like the composition...Tones are great. The line between the sea and the sand could be rotated to left 1' or 2'...


Très bien vu. Comme quoi les sentiments qui se dégagent d'une photo ne nécessitent pas toujours que l'on distingue les visages. J'ai même envie de dire que c'est un très beau portrait, aussi bizarre que ça paraisse.
Je suis d'accord avec le workshop de fotofrancis, recadrée de cette façon l'image est davantage accentuée sur les traces de pas, et un sujet décentré est toujours plus esthétique.
Belle qualité d'image pour un scan, bravo.

Great capture Pierre...I love the footprints in the sand.
This is a very favourite place of mine also...thanks for sharing and bringing back a good memory.

Très belle photo Pierre, très réussie!

Salut Pierre ,
Il n'y rien comme la plage pour créer des petits moments romantiques.
Belle création , beau cadrage, belles couleurs.
Vive les vacances !

Only one word:Beautiful!!!!

composition magnifique, invitant à la mer. Magnifique travail de lumière et DOF, une mer adorable et le sable très fin, quoi de mieux pour un esprit vacancier? Bravo Pierre!

Hi Pierre, great photo, so romantic!

This must be the perfect afternoon: to be in the beach with you beloaved one and watch the sunset... Drop the camera and open a bottle of good red wine... then... ahah up to you ;)

thanks for sharing

Hello Pierre,
I think I find some symbolism in your perfect centring of your main subject here! The bending footprints add the dynamics you need, and the small surf also gives life... It is an interesting capture, I wonder what might be on your mind when you did this... I like the mystery -

I love the lone figurew with the steps leading to the ocean. Very well composed with much feeling.

the foot prints make this picture very lovely. not to mention the blue wave, the sand, and the woman's dress.

beautigul picture, it looks like the ocean will "fall" on the woman.

Grear composition, excellent colors,
The green band of sea with full gradient (light to dark)blue looks very dramatic,
Congrats, TFS

Wow what a nice shape of footsteps on that white sandy beach.
The colours from her dress to the aqua ocean are great!
Nice shape with the wind blowing on her dress.
Very well positioned and captured.
Wonderful work.

Etrange ambiance !
Que pourrait penser cette femme face à l'immensité de la mer ?
Merci pour avoir partagé cette photo.

This is a great romance job.
Very nice and well framed.
I love the colors and long shadow of her body.
Best Wishes,
