Santa Monica Beach Day

 Wednesday, June 1, 2011

Yesterday I posted some sunset silhouette shots from the beach.  Here are a few more beach shots from just before sunset.  I used Soulful Everyday Vintage actions on these pictures, adjusted the layers, and added a touch of texture as well.

(I love that you can see the Santa Monica Pier and famous ferris wheel in the background.)

Here's what one of the beach photos looked like without the vintage effect.

These are great! Love the coloring of the sunset-y haze! I went to the Santa Monica Pier once and it was so much fun!

The soft focus works very well on these shots. We are heading to the beach Saturday for a week and I cannot wait!
