Another one from Santa Barbara last May. On our third day, the sun finally came out and we, like many others, enjoyed a morning at the beach Here a woman is walking her dog… which there is a lot of on this beach. In the background you can see a surfer swimming with his board.

WALK – taken in Santa Barbara, CA May 2011; processed with Topaz Adjust HDR Pop; further adjusted with Aperture dodge and burn tools.
What I like about this photo is that everyone is walking, including the walk sign except the one girl in red pants. Why isn’t she? And there is a lot of interesting detail, like why is the man wearing blue gloves?
Waterfront dining made for a good opportunity to catch a silhouette of this couple enjoying each other’s company so much that they didn’t notice me taking pictures, nor did they take time to look at their menus.
I applied the “Chesney” setting that I created last year in Aperture, moved the black point all the way to really bring out the silhouette and then ran it through Topaz Simplify Oil Painting.
