This is a photo I took of my husband looking out over the coast near my home. I like it in black and white, seems more dramatic to me.

Wow - this is nice - and so quick! I love the sparkle on the water and think this looks great in black and white - I prefer silhouettes that way, for the most part, since the subject should be black (or close to it) in my mind, anyway. Your hubby could stand out from the cut shadows of the rock beneath him - if you have PS I'd be curious to see what happens if you dodge those areas - should make your husband really pop.

This really also is striking in that it shows such a nice expanse of water - with one small man. It's a moment we all ponder, isn't it? We're so small in a big world. The rock crop to the right says there's more to come...

I really like this! :-)

I think monkey just spoke for everyone. So I'll pop into this thread and give you a nod, Julie.

*nods*

Great work. The diagonal composition leads the eye straight to your husband.
