Beach, North Carolina

Uploaded: August 28, 2007


effects done in photoshop trying to mimic Lensbaby effect. this shot was hard to frame, there were a ton of other people on the beach, and I had to sit for awhile for the frame to be clear of all but this cute little girl watching the waves. I don't know what was on her mind, but she seemed focused-- I like the photoshop effect with sharpness not exactly on her, but just above whatever she was looking at. It seems to make the picture feel more dreamy, and leads you to look at what she was looking at... the ocean can be so mesmerizing, even on a noisy crowded summer day.
