lakeside

Last one of the beach...I swear.
This couple was not far from us on our whole beach walk. It was crazy windy and that guy wasn't wearing a hat or gloves! Fool.

Today was a big day for me! 2 of my shots made it to the top 20!
With only 2 days left in my project, that was the first time in my whole year that I've ever made it there. What a way to round it out!
I was so excited, and it's silly. It's just a website, that shows off your hobby.
But no, today I felt like I was given huge pats on the back with a side of bear hugs.

Thanks so much for all the comments and favs...you guys are the greatest:)
that is too cool!!! awesome capture!

Wow, this is really cool! Love the colors and how the sky looks kind of creepy! Excited to see what your last 2 shots will be!!!

I am a slacker, I am falling behind in my project again......haven't posted since the 27th. Ugh. I need some ideas.
February 3rd, 2012  
Oops, I meant the tree looks creepy, not the sky! :)
February 3rd, 2012  
wow congrats on the top 20! this is stunning, amazing look to the sky
February 3rd, 2012  
@amers79 geez, no pressure there! I have no idea what my last shots will be. I guess I'll have to find somewhere interesting to go over the weekend! Thanks Amy!
February 3rd, 2012  
Great job with the composition! Amazing capture of the waves too.
February 3rd, 2012  
Oh spectacular landscape is what I'm hoping for on day 365 :-) this is great though. Love the energy in the waves and the framing of the couple with the tree
February 3rd, 2012  
looooove the colors so much!
February 3rd, 2012  
fab shot and excellent use of the branches for framing
February 3rd, 2012  
Is this the same bench as in the previous photo? I hope they didn't freeze their bums to the seats. It could take the edge off that happy picnic atmosphere. ;)
February 3rd, 2012  
@sabresun it was cold, but not cold enough to freeze bums (i don't think) No, it's not the same picnic table, that one was almost in the lake!
February 3rd, 2012  
WowowoW! this is Amazing! I love the moody gradient tones in the sky, and the line of birds is so cool.
February 3rd, 2012  
@fueast I seriously don't know where to find a spectacular landscape around here! It's supposed to be a sunny weekend, maybe we'll go for a drive and see what I can find.
February 3rd, 2012

February 3rd, 2012

February 3rd, 2012  
@mercynursey Thanks Suzan....and I dunno! lol
February 3rd, 2012  
I cannot believe this is a lake! So rough it looks just like our beach at the ocean. Nice shot!
February 3rd, 2012  
Wow - how did you get this to look so surreal? Looks awesome :)
February 3rd, 2012

well done editing to the colours! I really love the sight! From the preview I thought it was at a hill or in the mountains... don't know why... but the sea shot is much better this way! very cool!

Awesome!!
February 6th, 2012  
very awesome :)
February 6th, 2012  
Amazing silhouettes, brilliant shot
February 6th, 2012  
Which ones were in the top 20...painterly pier and splashdown? The sky is amazing in this...I know you mentioned HDR, but did you also apply a gradient of some kind?
February 7th, 2012  
@jgoldrup painterly picnic and splashdown. I found a lightroom preset that is a gradient. I tried gradient on my own and failed miserably so I'm glad I found it! Have to be careful not to overuse it though :)
February 7th, 2012  
Wow~, the contrast in this shot is just mind blowing!!! Total fav for wicked awesomeness!
February 7th, 2012  
wow amazing phot Jenn. That branch wonderfully frames the top. Lighting fabulous too.
