I've had a great week in the UK. I met up with my good friend Craig (who I haven't seen since we moved to Bulgaria in May 2009) and we took a couple of strolls along Fleetwood beach and co-shot a wedding in Kendal at the weekend. I also had a great 1-2-1 training session today with a photog who wanted to improve his post-production skills. We spent most of the day working on the Curves tool, but also covered black and white techniques and RAW conversion using Camera Raw. It's always a pleasure to teach someone who's passionate about improving their skills, and really rewarding to be able to help them.
As for this shot: there's not much I can tell you about it other than to explain that it's a shot of the waves breaking against a groyne on Fleetwood beach. As always, let me know what you think.
