Beautiful moment, beautifully captured. You really caught the mood with your excellent control of a backlit situation. The only thing I think I would do is add about 1/2 stop dodging to the man's face to bring him out a bit more. The woman and the dog are perfect, probably due to fill light reflected off the water.   Posted: 01/09/2022 15:17:40

Dicky, What a great moment! I can feel the waves lapping at my feet! I agree with Craig about brightening up the man's face a bit. I am most troubled by the very bright background on the right side of the image. The highlights are blown out. Not sure it can be fixed.   Posted: 01/12/2022 10:36:44

You certainly captured a nice afternoon at the beach! Would cropping in from the right minimize the highlight that is pulling the viewers eye away from the subject? I do like the backlighting and how it has highlighted the white shirts of the subjects.   Posted: 01/18/2022 11:17:30
