Thanks to tufcat for inspiring me to go back to this shot. I'm guessing that we all have an image or two that keep us returning to them, like an old dog gnawing on a bone.

However in this case, I can't find the original. I know, or think I know, or the voices in my head tell me, is on my external HD. Somewhere. So when I have time on my hands, I paw through (keeping the dog theme here) folders and folders, hoping it will turn up. In the meantime I play with this shot, which has already lived through many incarnations.

C&C always welcomed and encouraged.

This is a cute scene. The colors are vibrant, happy colors. Nice beach house wall art.

I like the effect too. The artsy effect that you used, works well for this scene. Would you share the adjustments/technique that you used to create this version of your photo?

Is there more of this photo to the right? For my taste, I wouldn't mind seeing a little more water, if it is available.

You have a lot of "Artistic Appeal" in this one Patrish. I agree with Tufcat... to be able to "lose" an inch of "left" and gain an inch of ocean would have been ideal. Nice job

Very artsy Patrish, great colors of a typical scene at the beach. I really like it.

You changed your avatar again..... You look so nice and tanned.
I would scare the living out of anyone in Myrtle beach with my very white skin. :D

Thanks, tufcat! I'm still looking for the original so I can start fresh. Appreciate your comments. I think that in addition to some Photoshop plugins I used Topaz Adjust.

Bob, thanks for commenting. I'm pretty sure I thought this shot was a disaster from the git go, due to the composition. I'm afraid I may have tossed the original in the trash, but I don't usually do that, so the search is still on!

Thanks for your comments, Lucille. We can always pick out our visitors by their white skin, but that only last a few days, then you fit right in with everyone else!

I think just some water is needed and enough is showing to cement the shot. The people on the beach is what matters most (IMHO) in this shot. Great color and nice finishing touches.
Many stories going on here, kite flying, a sun bather, a man with a cooler, sand castles, colorful umbrellas etc.. It could be the setting of a Debbie Miller painting. I give it a 10. :D

I like this, has a very nice feel to it, agree some extra sea on the right would be nice.
