Photography, Cycling and the Internets



My youngest daughter was playing at the beach in Santa Barbara in her sun dress and I grabbed this photo.  Everything about her pose, expression, the long grasses, sand and hill behind her screamed for a vintage look.  I used Nik Silver Efex Pro to get the look I was going for.  Some have said I need to crop it, and I can see why from a composition perspective, but I’ll be leaving it just as it is since I like the environment.

  1. What a great shot of your daughter! And I agree, keep it as it is. It holds with it the moment and true happiness that is expressed all over her face. 🙂
