Exit Beach

Another shot of William walking off the beach last month. I wanted to use this but never got around to it. Quickly processed for the look, could be better, could be worse. I like the drama but it is way not real. :-) Please mouse over to see the straight out of the camera before image. (Mouse-over tutorial to the right.)


Shot with Pentax K-7, 18mm, f7.1, 1/100sec. Processed in PS3 using an HDR script, masked a little in the sand to tone it down, way saturated, tweaked levels, added vignette.

This mouse-over thing is way cool!

I love the edit on this one, but I find I really like the SOOC just as well! Must be the cute subject!

I like the edit - it *is* pretty dramatic!

You are right about the expression. Looks like you do a lot of the same stuff with your images as I do, like darkening the corners, intensifying the colors etc. Like you mentioned it may be a little too saturated for my taste and I love that mouseover technique. I copied the tut. Thanks for dropping by my blog and for your kind words. OBTW I have a son and his family that live right there in Albany. I plan to get up there at least a couple times a year. Love that Oregon coast and I can't wait to get back.

Wow, the contrast between the original and edited photo is amazing.

This looks like a scene off a sci-fi movie. The stark colours and William's expression contribute to the beautiful tension in the picture.

Ok, I'm going to have to check out the mouse over stuff. It's a terrific capture regardless, but I do love what you've done to it! Love William's expression! Have a great weekend!

I like the angle of the shot. Your edit gives it a HDR effect. Nice.

Perry this one is beautiful. Hey I tried the mouse over I still can't get it, anyway I have to make an ample time to experiment it. Thanks for sharing!
