    This is a set from from my Florida visit. Some of you may recall some shots I posted from the trip. However, I never posted any of these shots. As you guys know I have been messing with DXO lately and loving it. Still in exploratory mode, but so I chose to put a twist on these beach photos. I applied a vintage B&W filter and no other post.

    I met this guy (Kevin I recall) on the beach. Yes he is a beach bum, but I speak to anyone. He explained that if he was going to be a bum, there was no better place to be. So when things started going down hill, he made his way to Florida and has been there for years. His thoughts where beer, girls, bathing, shelter under the pier and beautiful sunrises. He ask me, "what NY bum could claim the same?"

    Nice photos Gary. I particulary like the last two and the close-up portrait of Kevin :thumbup:
    As far as the B&W filter, I doesn't look bad, but I don't know why but I personally prefer color for beach/sea photos ;)

    All very nice. I like Kevin the bum. Beer, girls and beautiful sunrises, I'm strangely envious of him.
