I love winter (as long as it snows) but sometimes you just need to get away for a bit. I’ll be taking a short break from my blogging activities but will return shortly. In the meantime, I figured I would post this shot that I took on a trip a couple of years ago to North Myrtle Beach, SC (where I took this shot.) This image has been sitting around waiting for me to decide to do something with it. I’ve always liked the repetition of the chairs and the warm color but I held back posting it anywhere. I just purchased the PhotoTune suite which includes Focal Point 2. I decided to try it out by slightly altering the field of focus. It’s not a big change, in fact it might be too subtle but I’m just starting to experiment with this tool. I also used PhotoTools to bring out just a bit more color and contrast.

Since I won’t be posting new material for a few days, feel free to peruse some of my older posts that you may not have looked at before.
