    Shot this out on Antelope Island using a tripod for the camera and one Canon 430EX, camera right at 1/16 power, shot through an umbrella.

    I think you have done a nice job, and I like the effects you did. How did you get your son to wave at the camera with no one there?

    Funny you mention that. He has this thing for squirrels...so we were telling him to look and wave at the squirrel on the camera and he actually did it. :lol: Even though there was no squirrel!

    Yeah, I tried it in a smaller size but it just didn't do the picture justice...:D

    im not a fan of the intensity of the flash on the sand in front of you guys. for me you guys contrast with the sunset a bit too much. and the lighting on the sand does not attract me. it also casts some shadows behind you.

    i had to off set all the compliments you were getting lol

    Nice shot. The flash would have looked nice with a 1/4 or 1/2 CTO gel to make it look more sunset-y.
