Why in performing arts?

This image is of a musician who is a very good friend, he and his wife assisted me on a 3 day photo shoot across Texas. We drove 1500 miles starting Friday night at midnight after a band shoot and finished back in Dallas Monday morning at 7:30am.

Here is a shot of him and his wife on the beach at South Padre Island. The text "Right Here Right Now" is a great song he wrote for his wife.

I built this today for them.

Sorry I've not been posting much as I've been swamped with the project that I'll be using some of the images we took and the magazine.

Way to go Chris...

I once drove from Dallas to South Padre Island to our resort project on the Laguna Madre... I wonder if the paddle wheeler is still running inside the land side waters of Laguna Madre... US Senator, James Inhoff (Tulsa, OK) was the owner at that time...

I'm not sure what "rock" you are speaking of...there were no rocks or jetties in the shot...you might be looking at a wave shadow?

There were numerous steps in photoshop done to this.....3 images merged into one, mask of the couple, bumped the contrast after merge of just the background, added a glow and some other actions.

I use Kubota Image Tools to do about 90% of what I do....I did use photomatix to merge the same image at 1.5 stops apart and then applied some various tone mapping to get the look I wanted.

Here is a link to the Kubota image tools info...they are fantastic.

If you go to the bottom the Kubota logo will route you to the page that shows all the options......

Re: the image location...this is the Gulf of Mexico side of So. Padre Island... No jetty's, just a straight shore line...

My brother's staff used to have campfire nights on that beach, with guitar and accordion music, and bare back hose back riding, up and down the beach... I would fish 15 miles offshore at the edge of the continental shelf and bring back big fish for the campfire Bar B Q...

My last night there, I dropped off a 5 foot shark for the beach party BBQ, and headed back to Dallas that same night... Left South Padre Island at 11:15 PM and arrived in Dallas in time to issue payroll a couple of hours after sunrise... (along the way, in the middle of no where on the interstate, a road block by the US border patrol was stopping and searching everyone, but they chose to let me fly right through...great experience).

Will have to check Kubota Image Tools, sounds like a practical program to optimize Photoshop...

John is right......

I was shocked to find a space on the beach that was not crowded..there were a bunch of campfires and such going on.

Give me a call sometime John and we can talk about all those actions.

A bit too 'sweet' for my taste, but I guess it'll go in well with the targeted audience.
Nice image apart from the 'oversaturated pastelliness'. (don't know how to put it).

The over saturated pastelliness is pretty much on par with what I was trying to achieve.

Rene, "sweet" is not a bad thing. Sweet usually gets you big checks from the ladies. This one will be printed large on a canvas gallery wrap and hung in the bedroom.

That's why I'm not rich; checks is not what I'm after :lol:

thanks for sharing. good job on the hdr from one image. i can't seem to get that to work very well.

i'm not sure if jetty is the right word or not, but that's what i've always called it. there is a rock, or a shell that is influencing the flow of the water around the top of the relection (bottom of the frame). am i just looking at the picture wrong?

OK, now I see what you are looking at. Yes I was disappointed that a shell caused the water to reflect the reflection in this manor.

A jetty is a long group of rocks that extends hundreds of feet out into the bay in order to reduce erosion and cause waves to break.
