My son and nephew chasing the seagulls on the beach, I didn't want to shoot a plain ole bird shot since we all know who will dominate the votes in this challenge (not that there's anything wrong with that). So I went for something much more interesting...well to me anyway, maybe not to the majority.... and of course how could I resist the title.

I know it won't score too high, but not worried about that, to me it's timeless!! (I was wrong about that) edited after rollover

Well I'm totally blown away with how well my shot is doing, after one day, I really wasn't expecting this, but pleased to say the least.

Oh my. So nostalgic with the sepia. I love it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/23/2012 01:36:31 AM
An interesting take on the challenge, and an appealing photo. I do find the brightness about 1/3 from left a little too much for comfortable viewing, but nonetheless, a photo that works for me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/22/2012 03:30:47 PM
Not sure if this is a live photo, or one of a painting. It begs one to really scrutinize. I guess it is a motion photo. Very different style.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/22/2012 03:28:08 PM
Love your treatment of this image. Has a very nice nostalgic feel. Well done! 8

Although not the most obvious of shots in this challenge in my view it has the most feeling and overall pleasure giving of them all.

I like the idea behind this one and also like your choice of processing. The two people are so close together, though, that it almost looks like a two-headed boy.
