    Here is one taken at one of my client's home in Destiny... This walkover and the beachfront was destroyed by Hurricane Ivan... I'm guessing the scan/resizing, etc caused the grainy look to this. I've got a 11x14 print of this and it's as clear as can be.

    Beautiful! A lot of the walkways were taken out by the hurricanes. They always come back though :) Was this taken during winter?

    Has a surreal feel to it. A very nice shot. I kinda like the grainy quality. It almost looks like a painting.

    No - it was taken in the summer a year before Ivan wiped it clean. This is in a private gated community so no people or trash on the beach - just beach! Amazing what you can buy for a measly 4.5 million, huh?

    I like the grainyness. Could you lighten it abit - I think a litle lightening in photoshop would really bring out the bleached wood and shadows.

    Nice shot

    Thanks for the comments.
    Hilde... When he sold that place he bought a yacht and condo in Lauderdale. I'd like to see what it'd go for now.
    Chiller... Just a polarizing filter is all - no post-scan editing except for a slight crop.
    Peter... Alas - I don't have PS or anything else very sophisticated. If you'd like to have a go at it, help yourself. I'm not sure I know what you have in mind so I'd like to see it too.
