    Well our vacation in Mexico has come to an end, and we have come home to snow:thumbdown: . It was really nice down there(by Cabo); blue skys most of the days, and, when there were clouds, they were really awesome. Here are a three shots from the vacation. I will post more later.

    Let me know what you think!

    When you see a surf like in #1 and beautiful sunset colours like those, too, you begin to wonder why you came home into the snow, eh?

    I do like the low sidelight in 1, the cool softness of the long exposure in 2 and the colours in 3. How hard did you have to work on 3 to bring it out like this?

    Actually, for number 3, I did very little p.p.. I sharpened it, but, to get the those colors in the sky, I just lowered the exposure a little bit; the sky was a bit overexposed because I wanted the rocks exposed properly, so I just selected the sky and brought down the exposure.

    By the way, for the first two, I just sharpened the pics and straightened the horizons; no other pp was used.

    Overall, these three have just a little amount of pp.

    I've been saying that a lot of late:er:

    Anyway I have to say!!

    I love the 1st shot reminds me of Newquay
    2nd shot is spot on, the colour, the mist, the textures all perfect
    3rd shot I like like but I don't like the little pools on water on the right hand side, the ones in the middle are fine
