About the Image(s)

I took this image at least 20 years ago while out with my first photography teacher at about 3-4 in the afternoon, maybe a bit later. It was taken with a Canon Rebel (don't remember the model) on film and I misplaced the negative but it's been hanging on my wall for years as it is a wonderful memory for me of a very dear friend who is no longer with us. I decided to try photographing it and here is the result. I shot it with my Canon T2I and then adjusted brightness, contrast, and followed by taking it into Topaz Sharpen AI.

Hi Bev,
Old memories are the best. Nice copy shot of a good original.
Jones Beach has a memory of a childhood visit for me (Jones Beach, LI).   Posted: 09/02/2020 18:31:19

Thanks. I had a lot of wonderful days as a young teenager at Jones Beach as we moved to LI when I was 14 but this was one of the best as I was with my first photography teacher who turned out to be a wonderful friend.   Posted: 09/02/2020 20:34:46

I think you did a great job from taking a photo of your photo. It has such a tranquil feeling. Love the silhouette of the bird against the colorful sky. The beach is my happy place!   Posted: 09/05/2020 18:49:32

I love this because of all the history it contains. I think I may have been to Jones Beach once but I'm not even sure of that. The other thing I love is the bird against that gorgeous sky.   Posted: 09/05/2020 20:34:20

I like the warm tones and the sharp silhouette of the bird. Nicely done. A nitpick is that horizon is not level.   Posted: 09/05/2020 22:45:43

I wondered about that but I'm never sure if I'm seeing straight so I did not mention it.   Posted: 09/06/2020 10:28:21

Thanks to both of you. I often miss that, but it was an easy fix.   Posted: 09/06/2020 10:42:34

I love the horizontal bands of color in the photo and the way the bird is silhouetted against the lightest band.   Posted: 09/06/2020 20:44:30

This is a beautifully composed image! I love how you captured the warm colors of the sunset, the waves rolling in, the texture of the clouds, and a bird flying by. The image is really clear the scale makes it feel like I, the viewer, am standing right there watching this scene while walking down the beach. Great shot!   Posted: 09/14/2020 10:27:31

I have one more I want to try because I can't find the negative to scan it.
But then again, right now I can't even find the picture. Think COVID is driving me nuts. You're Right!!   Posted: 09/14/2020 15:06:34
