Hello Jan!! Nice sandcastle and looks like u've got nice weather there too!! Is this near your home?

BTW, i did a mod to auto-remove the orange color cast from the sky. Not sure whether u intended it, but i myself always like blue blue skies... Smile

Hello Sze. Thanks for your mod. Comes close to the original, but I did a warming up on it. lol
ps. Its 1 hrs driving from our home. At the end of the Oosterschelde, to open sea. where you took pics from the dike, its the opposite side.
one more, edit.
Lovely weather still now Sze. Over 26C at this moment. Expecting rain and cooler temp, tomorrow.
Have to run. Collecting Meri from down town. lol

Incredible that this is built with sand!. Very nice Capture Jan, great composition. The warm-up effect is nice on the sand, but I like your mod with the sky being bluer. The detail is ace in the large version.

Hi Jan, another excellent shot, you carried this off great, keeping the sand castle in strong and seperated from the sand. Well done! Spot on! Click!!!



Jan, I am sorry but I did not understand the question you left me on my shot about the size, what is is that you are looking for in terms of kb size?

Really fantastic what these artists can achieve. I understand they just use a special grade of sand which they contiuously spray with water while being at work. When the job is done they just do little repairs if necessary.
Good pic, by the way. Perfect composition.
