  Mini#38 Best of 2017

Lunch Break       ©2017 ysal
Panasonic DMC-GX7       12th place, 88 points
1/2000s, f8, ISO 200, 40mm, Normal Program, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Cropped and straightened; Slight color gaussian blur to smooth out the sky; increased color saturation; sharpened the non-sky portion; resized       Extra Info: This is a popular beach for windsurfing on a small island in the Caribbean where we vacationed this summer. It was not very windy this day, so not too many surfers out. Somebody was nice enough to leave this colorful surfboard while, I presume, he is taking a lunch break.

It's unfortunate much of the image quality was lost while re-sizing. The board is tack sharp on the original where I can read some writing on it.

    Beautiful colours and an effective composition.

    Those colours are magnificent. I really like your composition with the splash of red balancing the darker shades of blue.

    We've been getting -40 degree weather with the wind chill so this shot is particularly attractive. Wish I could see a bit more beach but eh blues and greens are terrific.

    Striking scene with simple design and great colors. Especially like the red projection onto the sand.
