First, I'm JEALOUS!!!

Man I wish I were on a beach like that.

OK back to the shots

Shots 2 & 3 are fantastic. But especially 2 looks over-sharpened. Given that, #3 is the winner. Very cool!

John, thanks for looking and commenting. Puntarenas beach is just a 2.5 hour drive from my house. !!

Shot #2 is not oversharpenned, it's actually in "low" sharpness, but the effect is caused by the "Enhanced Dark Tones" of Nikon's Picture Project, which I used to edit the shots (lazy me !!)

So here's a new version of the shot, without the enhancing option turned on, and just a little curvetweaking in PS (like a 5 second tweak!!).

Any betternow ??

#2, flying with the birds
