Family Summer Fun by Chuck Carstensen

August 2020 - Family Summer Fun

About the Image(s)

At the park I found this family swinging with gusto - having summer fun. I did ask permission from mom, on the left, and set the Fujifilm X-Pro2 camera on Continuous at 8 FPS. ISO 800, f/16. 1/480 , Aperture Priority. They did not miss a beat watching my picture taking. Processed in Luminar 4. The cloud is also mine, inserted using Luminar Sky Replacement. Otherwise, the sky was severe clear.

Love the colors and the action but most of all the width! You did a great job getting everything in the picture. I bet this family would love to have a copy of this photo. Great capture and I love the PostPro.   Posted: 08/03/2020 09:20:33

Hi Chuck, I like your image and the composition. The added sky turned out very well I think. I also like the green flip-flop in the foreground. In my opinion you might lighten up the face of the person on the left.   Posted: 08/04/2020 17:36:36

Excellent image. I like how it captures the vibe of summer along with the moment. I also like how the colors standout.   Posted: 08/05/2020 21:44:02

Very redolent of summer days. I'd be tempted to clone out the log in the right foreground, or maybe crop to make it a more panoramic format (maybe a little off the bottom and top). Adding the cloud gives interest to the sky.   Posted: 08/06/2020 20:47:55

Awesome image capturing the fun of summer.
Any chance you could have lightened the faces, I believe that lightening the faces wold better reveal the sheer joy on them?   Posted: 08/09/2020 12:13:17
