At The Beach

Uploaded: February 24, 2007


f22, 1/6 sec., Strathmere NJ, Summer 2006, I slowed the shutter speed on a windy day. I'm always drawn to pictures of the dunes, so this year I slowed the speed and increased the f stop for a different look. Then in the PSP9 I added soft focus and saturation for the final presentation.
