What do you mean missed the photo op. Those are the crack amphibious police squad patrolling the shore. When they get on land you can see them goose stepping like little Stevie's wet dream come true.

you think? I thought they looked just like leaders (a few conferring, the others blindly following, with Steve MIA)
ah, well, what's missing from this shot were all the gulls circling overhead....

All goose-stepping humor aside (haha), this really is a very cool picture. I would be interested in knowing what techniques you use to achieve such a great look.

Annie: I don't usually go for the special effects, but this one I liked. I post using LiveWriter and used the embossed effect, then played with the colour.

I like the end result

Limar said...

Great photo, and a very cool effect :)

Lew said...

The composition is superb, emphasizing the horizontal lines! And the photo editting really makes it stand out!

VioletSky said...

thanks, all. I'm still on the fence about using effects, but in this case I liked the result even better than the original. and the whole point was the lining up of the geese!
