[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
During my morning walks on beach I saw this couple walking in the surf. It was a perfect morning. The temperature was in in the mid 70's with a slight breeze from the ocean. The sun was just breaking the horizon and it was a little cloudy. Personally, I like the clouds esp. in pictures. Anyway, I liked the way the shot looked so I thought I would share it.

Tech stuff: Shot with a Tamron 70-200 lens with no filters. I shot in raw and later converted to jpeg. the SS was 1/640, ISO 100 and aperture was set at f/10.0. In PP I used Nik HDR software for color and highlights. I increased vibrance slightly, adjusted levels, cropped, added vignetting, resized and finally sharpened. I hope you like this shot.

Thanks for viewing and have a great day.

Very nice composition and nicely framed. Great use of natural light. Good dof with sharp details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Hello Kevin

Another striking image from what looks like to be a beach series to delight our eyes. Nice composition and great vision. I like how you caught them in a perfect POV in thier walk. Sometimes it is hard to get the legs in a appealing position. Nice work


Hi Kevin. Nice photo, thoughtful and effective composition and crop. Sharp through the frame at f10 and a nice golden light.

Splendid ;-)


This is fantastic Kevin. Great composition, lovely lighting and color, beautiful tones. Really nice shot! Well done. TFS, Lori

Lovely shot Kevin.. what a great atmosphere. I love the warm colors of morning. well cropped too. The parachutes to the left are a good bonus.. and a good balance to that side of the shot.

Parachutes?? What timing!! I love the light in this shot! Well done considering it's an "into the sun" kind of shot!....I'm not sure I would have left the parachutes...but maybe.....eh.....I have no idea! The picture looks marvelous!

Hi Kevin,
What a tranquil beach shot with this couple in the perfect position in the frame!
Glorious lighting with that sepia cast on the ocean.
I like the two parachutes which are a bonus in the spectacular sky!
Beautiful HDR treatment and an adequate panoramic format.
Well done,
