beach football

By johnL
A town in the Cinque terre, 5 isolated towns on the north west coast of Italy. Only had a couple of hours there last year, but it was dull, and rained a little. Waiting for the boat to go back to Porto Venere we watched a game of football being played on the beach between some Italian kids and some Americans. No prizes for guessing who was winning. Although it was overcast, a guy had to continuously spray the sand with water from a hose to stop the kids feet from burning.

Came back last year with a dull slide of this image. Spent a while going back and forward from this pic, and I think I've finally managed to recreate how I think the day should have been, rather than the washout it was! Ahhh the magic of photoshop.

UNFORTUNATLY FOR ME THE GUY ON THE RIGHT LOOKS LIKE A BUTANE GAS CONTAINER!! AND THE BRIGHT YELOW BOAT IS DISTRACTING

A NICE FLAT SHOT OF THEM WOULD BE GOOD...LOOK NICE WITH A BLUE TONE

Andy, thanks a lot for the encouraging comment.

Am torn between(oooh the agony)cropping the bottom part off, cuz the footie scene is what I like best, but I was focussing on the boat, and I don't want to get to much of a reputation for soft shots!

Callum, yeah, yeah, you taught me everything I know...didnt have a longy with me, due to sheer laziness, and I missed it. Got a shot of some similar buildings a bit flatter on that I think you might like-have a look on Sunday if your in the office.

Cheers for the cool comment.

BUTANE GAS CONTAINER on the beach has got to be against health and safety,Aggree with Callum the Boats are a little too much crop them and a little of the sky out and its not too bad, Ask uncle Callum to show you how.

Nice pic all the same, Take it the american won the footy?
