I spent about three hours last night taking and post-processing some smoke shots, but unfortunately none of them were up to much so I didn't get around to posting anything yesterday. So, in lieu of having anything else to put up, here's another shot from the beach that includes the couple from yesterday's shot.

And no, Libby hasn't had the baby yet. She was due yesterday but is obviously perfectly happy where she is. I can't say I blame her, it's chaos in our house at the best of times :-)

I love the warm tones, but the almost silhouetted figures look quite graphic. Good shot.

I love the lighting. I also like the contrast between the 2 couples: 2 are close together, holding hands and in the middle of a couple farther apart, yet reaching out. :D

I want to know If u use any kind of filter in the capture, or the "orange" tone is a bit of PS and the natural sunshine.

I thought that yesterdays image was perfect but this is something else again! Beautiful image. mal

I enjoy this one much more than yesterdays- simply stunning.

I think the scene is neat: Couple in the middle holding hands, couple slightly closer, with woman's hand outstretched waiting for her man to catch up. It's also funny how far away he is and she's already got her hand out ready for him, why do humans do this?

It's a great image, but after revisiting this image a few times I can't help thinking that the composition could have been a little better if all the characters had been slightly further to the right.

OK, that's enough, I've been staring at it for at least a minute now and I just get lost in it. Really lovely! Take a 'bump' shot of Libby again - or may it be too late by now?....

They look as if they are walking on water. Nice.

comment by Jennifer at 08:13 PM (GMT) on 18 April, 2007

C'mon Libby - I want more baby shots! Not that this isn't lovely ;-)

What a wonderful golden colour you have here. And you have managed to keep some detail in the shadows of the people too. I really like this image.
