    One of the Bermuda shots. Part of his hair is blown, the sunlight reflected on the wet golden hair was just hard to avoid here. And his body was turned so it would be shaded. I am pleased with the study as I was just taken by his seeming grumpyness and wispy look, and wanted precisely this kind of image.

    Thoughts greatly appreciated,

    Nacho :smile:

    Thanks Greg. Yes, I like the feel of this shot, although I think it is still in the early stages of processing. I'm still mulling what more it needs.

    Thanks again!

    Dan, thanks! I don't normally add frames to images anymore, but maybe a simple white border might do here... we'll see. Thanks for the thoughts. I appreciate it.

    Best,

    Garon, thanks! I definitely like it (but I'm biased given that it is my son!). Springfield eh? I'm in Salem, and will be back there in September. We'll have to find a group of Oregon Cafe members and get together for some Fall outing!

    Thanks again,

    Nacho

    Nacho,

    I like how you processed it! And I love the "Oh, Dad, not again" look on his face... :tongue:
     
  9. I really like this shot Nacho. Looks like it could be from an ad campaign of some sort.
