    found some in the archives.

    I love beach scenes. I started up an old hard drive and found these. I did a bit of pp on them and this is what we've got...


    My favorite. This kid soaked up every last bit of sun he had.

    I feel kind of guilty on this one because the beach was full of people and I took them all out. It works though so I'm happy with the result.

    This guy was at it for at least 20 minutes trying to get out. This wave settled it for him... he wasn't there a second later

    Actually, I don't know what these qualify for, landscapes or people. Are they ok here?

    Hi sb, here are ok. All of them show pure nature!

    They're nice, specially they captured the "right moment".

    Not trying to criticize your editing ability, however I just find something wrong with the second picture, I'm not an editing nor a pro photographer, however I could see on your second pictures some shadows behind the runner and please correct me if I'm wrong, however I observed that the sun is not in front, therefore shouldn't be back shadow. Am I wrong?

    Cheers,
    Daniel

    Yea, I didn't touch the runner. She was my focus. The 'shadow' or reflection that you see is normal. A reflection is direct to your perspective, which is what you see. If it was a shadow, then yes, you would be right that I botched the editing. The sun was setting off screen on the far left. Good observations, I'll be sure to look for these things when I do edit

    I rather like the 2nd one, nice atmosphere with all that spray combined into a mist and the bird flock

    Am slightly intruiged by the guy in no 3 carrying a spare board...perhaps he is standing on a rock
