Just throwing this one up for kicks n grins... This was me a few weeks ago in hilton head island on the beach. I just had some random passerby take the pic, but i loved the way my bikini compliments the orange drink that is also in the pic. Lemme know what ya think.

Since this is my image straight from my dig cam.. give me some ideas on editing techniques that might add to the image.. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Basically this looks like a decent shot using a point and shoot digital camera with an f/stop that put most of the things in focus. I put it in photoshop and put the background out of focus and since you are the main subject in the picture I did a tighter crop.

The top image is your original post and the one below it is my post-production work to it. The first, major adjustment was to the horizon to have it, well, horizontal ... lol Maybe it's just me, but that has always been a pet peeve of mine and my eye goes to it immediately whenever it's askew. I also cropped the sky back a bit as I found you floating too much in the frame.

Besides that just a bit of color and contrast tweaking, some level and curve adjustments, cloning out some elements I found distracting (shoe straps next to your leg and a few of the people down on the shoreline) and finally I dodged a little around the drink, your hair and the swell of your breasts to make all pop out a little more.

Oh, wish that the person shooting had kept your entire hand in -- I semi-fudged part of it in but would have been better to have it in the original. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

For straight out of the the camera ... a Canon PowerShot S1 ... it was very nice file to work with.

I'm thinking a big sheet between the sun and the feet would've been nice soften those edgy shadows and emphasize the patterns of feet and stars. It could be done in post but would take a bunch of time. Cool shot.

Thanks Dave,

I really liked the adjustments you made. They make a big diff in the whole aesthetics of the picture..

Could i have gone with a better camera for just a person who likes to dabble in photography?

Oh, and where is pheonixville pa? My mom is in Philli and i visit the area at least once a year in the summertime.

Thanx again..
Hailey

Thanks Chip for your comment. The other feet owners' in the shot looked at me wierd when i said to stand across from each other and around the starfish. I was pleased with it. There is another one where i angled it differently and i wasnt as closeup.. but wouldnt ya know the danged lenscap was dangling in the top left of the pic.

Thanks again,
hailey

you look quite relaxed on that beach. your nipples also look unusually relaxed. perhaps they could be digitally enhanced? (i.e., digitally hardened?) [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
