Summer Stock Sunday



This is the inaugural Sunday for this very interesting meme created and hosted by Robin at Around the Island.

Here's my offering for Sunday May 31, 2009:


Photobucket

This is a photo I took in August, 2001, in Cancun. It was the first time we went to Mexico on vacation and we enjoyed ourselves very much.

I did some photo-editing to improve the quality of the photo. First I applied a style that called for fading of color from top to bottom. And then I applied the Poster Edges filter.

Hope you like it.

Robin's meme starts today at 5:00 PM EST. Go on over to her blog to visit other participants.

Well, Mary the Teach, I love it. Photography, for me, is an artful expression and this is art!

Great job!

So, Daryl sent you to The Villages and I ended up here.

That's fantastic. I'm bookmarking this site so I can return often...

Thanks for you kind words about The Villages Daily Photo.

I love the posterizing - what an evocative shot. I can almost smell the sea breeze and hear the shouts of the children playing in the waves.

I'm so glad you came by to sign the Summer Stock linkie, I'd have missed this!

You make me want to go to Cancun -- except I won't wear a bathing suit in public (lol). I like the poster edges.

Thank you for this vision. I spent at least 6 minutes gazing into it. It is the perfect balance of warm and cool that can hit you only near the beach. Great piece of summer. Thank you!

I just love how the bird is the focal point. Must have been hot!

It beautifully conveys the heat of a summer's day (and how to escape it :)

Oh wow! It's amazing!!!! Mexico is amazing! I love the bird watching everything going on from that post-totally adds a "thousand words" to the shot. I really like that effect, too. It looks like a painting!
