Kevin, thank you so much for starting this thread because it will keep going all year long. As we in the northern hemisphere try to hold on to our last days of summer, calling the early fall Indian Summer, if we're lucky,...and the leaves start to turn and the daylight fades...we've got our friends in the southern hemisphere whose summers are beginning to unfurl!!
Thanks Herman/BB, that first shot with the 3 girls on the paddle-kayak will certainly carry me through the coming winter - it is already on my desktop background as those girls seem so carefree ... sigh makes me wish I was young again
One more from the summer of 2010 on the Adriatic that I just got finished re-working. Seems I have a lot of older shots that I did before I had (or knew how to use) Silver Efex Pro that I can do a lot more with now, with the help of that software. Have re-worked about 8-10 over the last couple of days - pretty cool to find new potential in old photos...
Rich, the more I look at your photo the more I love it - colors, setting, composition, etc. I especially love the perspective of the shot, it makes me want to climb into my monitor and learn to surf ... or to be completely truthful, introduce myself to the surfer and ask for surfing lessons
