Playa Restinga-Lazy Afternoon
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This is Playa Restinga in the Island of Margarita, Venezuela. I was taking spanish lessons in the morning, and in the afternoons, we would go to different beaches to relax. I cropped the original image, removed some foreground clutter. Corrected the image using Dodge & Burn to bring out or even out ligthing for the casita, people, sand, and trees. I used Fred Miranda's "Velvia Vision" to enrich the colors. Then, "Neat Image" to remove the noise. Finally, some Unsharp Mask to bring out the detail.|
REVISION: I noticed some heavy noise in the darker portion of the building, which I removed with Gaussian Blur.

Don't know why there isn't any critique on this photo...yet. I like it, especially the compostion as well as the colours.
Maybe the frame is a bit too much???

you have captured the mood beautfully. You cant notice the noise you have mentioned at all. I would have perhaps played around a bit with the sky to enhance the blue. An overall 10...well done..martha
I'm surprised this didn't get more points...composition is spot-on and your post-processing work has given the image an almost-3D look. It looks like the lighting could have been a little tough to meter, but you handled it well. Nice job!
