I nearly entered this into this image into the 'mid year checkup' challenge, but thought it would be better in the FS!


Seen the Brooklyn bridge, Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1114161.jpg (funny I achieved a yellow with that one too) now the golden gate. Two bridges that were on my bucket list, the third one is the "living bridge" living bridge, not sure if it will ever happen, but I can dream!

Thanks for the nice comments, and bling from George. Nice to win my 2nd ribbon in a FS in the first 6 months.

PS: it was almost as much fun watching the bodysurfer strutting his stuff as it was to be experiencing the chilly winds blowing through my hair! The mist was an added bonus....which I was hoping.

Nice capture and a well deserved ribbon. It never looked like that once during the three days we were there. :(

I really liked the perspective and point of view of this plus the moody processing is really nice. Congrats!

Funny you should say that as I thought twice about entering such a cliche shot, but I thought the editing would make it somehow different to others you may of seen on here. Appreciate your comment.

Exactly what I was trying to achieve, thanks!

Gorgeous picture, that misty feeling, the wave coming toward the viewer. I smell the blue ribbon coming to you.
