    Not where I thought I'd end up
    Taken on a very foggy, misty, windy day at the beach. We had a birthday party planned for my visiting nephew but had to move indoors. My sister-in-law wants to have this scene painted on the wall in the lobby of a tanning salon she owns in North Carolina. Comments and critiques welcomed.

    It does have a certain *something* to it. But overall, it just looks too overexposed.

    Looks like one of those happy accidents in photography - definitely overexposed, but for me it's working. :thumbup: Just looks high key, with a very light hand-tinted touch, which is probably what your sister-in-law is envisioning for her shop. It should look fabulous.

    Nice imagery!

    Nice photo - great composition. I also feel it's a little overexposed - kinda hurts my eyes - but a nice photo anyway!

    I like the composition of the shot, but i agree with woodsac, i'd darken it to ensure better contrast whilst still keeping the 'foggyness' of the far end.

    Nice shot and yes you could say overexposed OR you could say it looks like a dream.
