Here are a few of my favorites at the moment:
|Stockton Dunes at Birubi Point|
|One Mile Beach|
The sun was beginning to set at this point. Unfortunately, the sunset was behind this beach. However, we were getting nice muted shades over the beach. This one I like because the foam really did appear to be a pale pink.
One Mile Beach had a beautiful curve to it. I was up on several rocks trying to get the whole beach.
This is a little on the dark side, but I think the colors are pretty. Also, the moon!
Those were most of the landscapes. The rest of these pictures have Wills in them. I feel terrible that Nath isn't in any, but he hates the bigger waves and wouldn't come down to the water.
This is a transition picture. Will was interested in the man fishing out in the middle of the water. I was very pleased with this picture.
This may be my very favorite picture. I was pretty sure I was going to be happy when I took it. I knew I had captured the dirty knees, reflection, and shadow. What pushed it over the top for me was the little curled toes. I'm not entirely certain why this picture is so appealing to me, I just know that it is.
I'm calling this my dumb luck photo. I know it's a bit overexposed, but I actually like Wills and the dog being dark. The dog just wandered up and they looked at each other for a split second - I saw it happening and was hoping I caught it decently. The truly dumb luck part was the symmetry of the feet up.
So my plan is to try to several pictures a day and hopefully get some good shots to upload. I would love feedback on the pictures - especially why you like or dislike a picture. I'm curious about the gut reaction - what makes a picture appeal to people. I know about the rule of thirds, golden mean, etc., but sometimes it seems like you can't label it.
Thanks for letting me know what you think!
