We went to the beach yesterday. It was pretty chilly at the beach! The one good thing was it was overcast. Please CC. I know in the second picture his hand was chopped. I got to watch that. I seem to be doing that lately (its in camera crop).

Just chug-chug-chugging along.
okay, I'm not calibrated. but that being said, I know my monitor is close enough color wise (I check with my prints) and that first one just looks orange to me. I know it's overcast, I'm thinking the sky needs to look more gray than orange. Brandon also looks a little orange to me in the second, but the sand does not.
maybe someone calibrated will see it differently ... but it looks like a nice walk on the beach, I'm jealous.

Yeah, I should have said that I pped so that it looks like that the yelowy PP is intentional.
I like the pp. I think the first would be stronger in comp if DH were interacting more with your DS. But it is very cute!
I like the first shot, but I'm just not a fan of the coloring...it just doesn't fit or enhance. I expect blue, or grey...I love some clever pp in beach shots, but I just think these are the wrong direction color wise...like there was some sort of nuclear accident at this beach site. The 2nd shot isn't doing that much for me composition wise. You've chopped his fingers and we have no connection. I don't mind a subject that is looking away from the camera if I get some sense of what they are focused on or may be thinking. Here it just looks like he's watching his step as he walks. His eyes are also in the center of the frame vertically. They should be set higher in this instance. You could crop out the top 1/3rd or so of the image.

I converted the picture in black and white just to get a bit more play with it. Thanks for all the CC.
I like the b/w much better on the first one! Love the color and focus on #2!
I like the bw version as well. I think it looks like your ds is trying to surf. That might be cause Im from IA and really jealous of all the beach pics...
EL - good for you for getting out and practicing. So hard with little ones.
I don't like the yellow pp, but do love the b/w.
Bummer about the finger chop.
