[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
My wife and I headed down to North Myrtle Beach for some much needed R&R. We stayed at the very same place we stayed at on our first visit there around 15 years ago (sans kids this time). Back then there was very little beach and it was fairly flat, so when the tide came in it often lapped at the steps to the condo. Now the beach has been replenished and dunes with sand grasses help protect it from erosion. It's very hard to get a shot without people straying by, but I managed to hide the hustle and bustle a bit with this shot.

Thanks for viewing.

Hi Werner,
Welcome back my friend! I also took a short break from TL. Judging by the exposure on the water, it seems like the sun was very harsh. Personally I think the FG is much too dark here, which doesn't allow us to see any of the details in that area. Quite enevitable when shooting against the sun, but very manageable with a bit of PP work. Check out the quick workshop I did, I didn't spend much time on it but should give you some idea of what I mean.

I do like the look of the silhouetted 'Prince of Whales feathers' though. Hope you enjoyed your getaway :).
