The real one is lovely too, though.

And sprinkle the lime like rain,
Forth I wander, forth I must,
And drink of life again."

These are beautiful Sandra! That second pic sis so cool! Just love the sun rays over the ocean. You've got me wanting to visit the beach!

Rose said...

Wow, Sandra, I am not sure which version I like best...love both.

They are both gorgeous and I expect at just the right time of day you could have captured #2 out of the camera too!! They are both frame worthy for sure as is your Monarch butterfly.
Hugs Madi and Mom

Wonderful. I think I prefer the colours in the original. But either way the image is of the kind that sets the thoughts swirling... For example, I wonder whether they are they bathing or if there is a baptism going on?

A bonus post today! I almost missed it, but the butterfly was so colorful below that the edge shouted to me!! These silhouette pictures are beautiful, to me they show how small we are compared to the universe. I love your edited one, but really I think the two are equally pretty, just different colors. I don't know which I would say is better. The butterfly pictures, WOW!!!! They are gorgeous, a double overload of beauty with the bushes. I love the angles you got, everything about them, they just shut color and beauty!!!! It is making me anxious to snap my first butterflies of the season. Why did you get into trouble as well when the dogs did bad things? Just because you were trying to keep them? I don't know about your dad, it is a good hunch. But I also think that your neighbor could likely have done it on her own, especially after the pillow incident. I'm sure there must have been quite a few neighbors who would have been happy to see them go, we will never know...good story!

Spectacular silhouette photos.
I love how the rays filter down to the water.

Susannah said...

WOW! So gorgeous. I like them both....but the aqua/turqoise with pink is stunning!

GingerV said...

just great, I like the original one very much - but for silhouette the tweaked one is REALLY good.

Andrew said...

It's a beautiful image and I can't split them. It must have been a wonderful moment seeing it in person.

Eva Ason said...

Well I am still learning after about 4 years. The top one is a very good shot for me to learn from. Trying to learn better angles at this time. But I am also learning how to work with photoshop. Great post.

I really like the first photo with the sun shining through the clouds and onto the water. Nice silhouettes of the people in the water :)

Jama said...

Both are so well taken I just can't decide which is my favorite.

Diana Cooper said...

Wonderful blog with great photos! I joined your blog and look forward to seeing more :)

Ann said...

straight off the camera or tweaked, it's a very pretty picture

Mamabug said...

Great photo; love how you tweaked it. The colors are awesome.

Deb said...

awesome shots Sandra....Have a Happy Mothers day weekend...

Pauline Woodcock said...

Agree with the above. A beautiful scene, beautifully captured and played with.

Debra Dickinson said...

They're both great but I like the first one. :) Beautiful!

Michaele said...

I never would have thought the green would look this good in an ocean and sky scene. Great job!

Remington said...

AWESOME!

I think they are both really good. I like the original one but the edited one is really nice too with the colors.

Doreen said...

these are just fabulous shots!

I like to see what people do with Photoshop -- of course, it is difficult to photoshop something when the original is already so good.
