A day at the beach on Saturday resulted in millions of pics - this is one of the few good ones! My son and daughter take the starring role..

Thanks for the comments. Fair amount of post work done with this shot as i'm still learning with the new camera. Exposed for the sky which left the foreground very dark so lightened it considerably. Also took out a car on the left side which has left noticable artefacts

6mm (36mm equiv) which is the widest i can get with my fixed lens. I'm toying with getting a wcon for my sony which would take me down to 27mm, tho i'm not sure it's worth the money for a lens that will still not get me truly wide.

Very nice shot. Too bad about the tire tracks-for me, they're a bit of a distraction in the picture. Great composition and exposure though--maybe some cloning could be done?..........cheers......Don

I agree. Untouched sand would have been much better. One of those 'Get home, upload to the pc and think 'Darn, if i'd just repositioned'' moments! Ah well, put it down to experience i guess...

Very nice! I see what you mean about the artifacts though, pity

Still a worthwhile image though,

John.

Or both... or even a third option of re-doing the shot with conditions right - It's such a great shot that to shoot it again, looking out for the known "nasties", will be well worth it.
