Photo Art Friday, week 2


Last weekend Hurricane Katia passed by Nova Scotia.  It was far enough off shore that we had a beautiful sunny day with lots of huge waves.  Many surfing enthusiasts grabbed their surfboards and headed to the beach.  I initially used a crosshatch filter, but took it off; I think I may have sharpened and perhaps bumped up the contrast, if I recall right - did this earlier in the week.


This photo was taken the same day.  The couple on the beach are watching the surfers waiting to catch the next promising wave(s).  I did use a PS warming filter to make it appear as if this was taken later in the day.

To see more photo art, or to participate, head over to Photo Art Friday

So jealous that you were at the beach and I wasn't...
Wonderful photo's though. The couple on the beach look so romantic.
