Fun on the 4th of July

You are so lucky! I spent last 4th at the beach, and it was wonderul! This year I'm in the desert and it's kind of a 'keep indoors, it's hot' kind of day. Hopefully there will be some good fireworks later though. Maybe I'll be able to shoot some.

I like the concept of your #2 picture by the way. Have you more like this?

Chris, this was the first time I've used the technique I tried in the second photo. It involved using several nik mulitmedia Color Pro 2 filters including a partial B & W conversion in which I painted back the underlying layer to focus on the three groups of figures and the surf.

I'm not at the beach today, weed whacking the annual tall grasses and thistles instead. Fortunately it's not to hot here, but I can certainly identify with you about that desert heat. This would be a good time to do some PS experimenting I would think.

Keep cool and enjoy the 4th!
