    I'm trying new things with my photography these days (less landscapes and birds).
    So today i went to the beach and instead of running around chasing subjects i pretty much staid on the same strip of sand for about an hour.
    This is what came out:

    #6

    I hope it gives a bit of the candid feel i intended.
    C&C welcome.

    You did good :thumbup:

    Maybe crop out some of the sky in #1?
    I really like the abstract in #5.
    But, I think #4 is my fav of the series.

    It's not just you. I used extra in-camera saturation and a polarizer. Tweaked a little in PS as well.

    Great work - the series really instilled the feeling of people enjoying the beach. Nice compositions as well.

    I agree about cropping the top of #1 a bit, and possibly moving the dog out of the center of the image. Might be a good effect to put him on the right side and let him jump into the photo.

    I like the saturation and don't think it's too much.

    Really nice job.
