Taken one late afternoon on Hunstanton Beach...

My elder Sister decided to take a stroll along the beach whilst I was taking snapshots of my boys.


(graduated cokin filter attached to camera lens, but cannot remember which one!)

Lovely colours and mood. Those waves lead out to the focal point of your sister very well.
being constructive, that dip in the horizon by the bright reflection is not an optical illusion (I checked with a ruler), it's lens distortion and can be corrected in software so that it's not so noticeable/distracting.

Hey Al!

Thanks for your kind words...

That dip drives me insane, but although i put it through the lens correction in CS5... i still get the dip (well at least the illusion of the dip and for some reason it looks worse than the original!!) It doesn't help with the fact that the lay of the sand at the shore sloped upwards!

What software do you use for your lens distortions??

I have to admit, that since upgrading to a new full frame camera (this was taken with one of my old cams) and better 'L' lenses... I'm working more and more on lens distortion since it is sooooo much more noticeable using wider lenses on a full frame cam... Some images are in fact quite nice with the distortion but then many are just ugh!
